Ever since moving to Michigan, Derek and I have been scouting out places that we believe are "must sees" before our short time here is up. The Henry Ford Museums were at the top of our list, and with Derek having a few days off this week, we took advantage and visited Greenfield Village. The village is over 80 acres of original buildings, machinery, and automobiles from all over the country and history that Henry Ford himself purchased and moved here to the Ford headquarters outside of Detroit. Included in this mass collection are Thomas Edison's labs and offices, the home & bike shop of the Wright Brothers, a courthouse Abraham Lincoln practiced in, and countless numbers of homes from the 1600s and on. The village is set up into different places: Farmland, Main Street, Edison Square, Parlors & Porches, and Railroad Depot. We spent six hours, took over 200 photos, ate yummy Southern food, and found at least five old homes we deemed "perfect" for us one day.
Since we took so many pictures, a follow up post with even MORE photos will be up Friday. With even cuter houses. Seriously, I died and went to heaven here.
