Treasures


I have been meaning for us to go to the Skinner Farm Museum for a while now...I just found out about it by chance when looking at a list of round barns a while back.  I quickly got on Google Earth to see if it was still there, and it was.  Today was the first time I remembered it when we actually had the time to stop.  For this Tuesday's Treasures, I am showing you a few shots from the Blacksmith's Shop.  Notice the huge bellows there in the corner in the above photo!

This is the another corner...there was no room to walk and get good photos..just had to stand and click.

See that barrel back against the wall?  It is made from a single wooden log....it is too wide to fit through a normal door.  There was no way for Roger to stand beside to just the proportion.


Everywhere we looked, there was more and more.


I hope you enjoyed these photos from the Blacksmiths shop....

This reminds me of Old Beford Village. I simply must share my shots from there.

A Farm Museum - something to keep for future generations to remember farming, the way it was done, back in the day!
Nice share, Rose!
Have a Happy Week!!
Peace :)

Hi Rose, I really did enjoy seeing the photos of all this great stuff. What a lot of history in this space. That barrel would be fabulous on a patio or deck. Thanks for taking the time to stop and take these photos.

What a lot of stuff in that museum. It is everywhere. No wonder Roger could not get alongside the barrel to compare sizes...I am surprised you were able to get as good photos as you did. So glad you all had time to stop. Am in bed...back.

I enjoyed the blacksmith's shop very much. It's too bad they do not have the room to spread all these items out so they could be seen better.

What a great place to visit. I would love to go to a Smithy's shop. My late husband was a horseshoer before he got too old-(LOL) He loved working in the fire and making shoes. Nowadays that's not done too much.

We have a local living history museum and the blacksmith shop is one of my favorite buildings. I often try to think back to the days when the blacksmith was an important part of daily like. Thanks for sharing this week Rose and please hurry in back.

A blacksmith's shop is always a great thing (we have one still working here), how good, that they save it as a museum!

that is a lot of treasures in one place. when i saw the fireplace i thought that is a treasure because it is up high enough i could use it without bending/stooping/kneeling.

Marcia said...

Christine said...

Blacksmith shops are fascinating! We have a nice one in our Barron County Historical Society Museum. Love your photos. So much cool stuff! And what would we do without Google Earth! BTW, Mr. C. goes on GoogleEarth once in a while to check in on a town in Scotland that bears the same name as our village here in Wisconsin. Long Distance Snooping! LOL

Arti said...

What an interesting museum and blacksmith shop. The bellow in your first photo is so huge, I have never seen it with such a size. All photos are so awesome.

I did enjoy them Rose.. I can't believe how much stuff there is in that relatively small space. So many mysterious 'tools' :) You captured the feel of the space so well, it would have been a difficult shoot.

Stephanie said...

Wow! Love those treasures you found to photograph.
