We recently took a little field trip to a historic community put together by the Montgomery County Library system. A very sweet lady in our homeschooling group got this set up and we were able to have a guided tour of these houses (that we previously had only gotten to peek in the windows at!).
This was a neat replica of the city of Montgomery from long ago.
inside the first house - they had set these places up really nice.

they are putting up a church bell here
inside a "large" cabin. I found it interesting that this cabin was built just a couple of years before the pier and beam house we had just been in!
this man did something "odd" with the household chamber pot - he built a seat for it.. this was unheard of back in his day
He also built a very fancy cradle
and see the "bathtub" here - most folks just washed in a large steel tub but this man had built a "bathtub" that was easy to dump out.
neat chimney that Mr Jack (our tour guide) redid himself
