Visit to Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village

Our family visited the Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village. It was a free event and people were reenacting and dressed up in time period costumes. Nathan and Sara enjoyed watching a "shoot out at the saloon". Aletta and Anna were bothered by the gunshots, so I moved on with them. The buildings we visited included a working mill, one room school house, school housing, phone operator building, doctor's office and general store, civil war encampment, blacksmith shop and church. Throughout the village, there was storytelling and a few music booths. We enjoyed seeing how life was back then. We sure have been blessed with so many inventions now.
