Kings Landing again

I hope you aren't tired of seeing pictures of Kings Landing Historical Settlement.

We went last week and really enjoyed our few hours there.  As it's near the end of the season and it was a weekday it was very quiet there.  The busy crowds of summer are gone and there were just a few tourists and locals wandering around the village.  The staff had lots of time to talk with us and explain the history of the homes and buildings we were in.

The Joslin Farm ~ 1860

The Hagerman house ~ 1880

The barkeep at the Kings Head Inn.

The dining room across the hall from the one we were in.
There were only 6 other people dining besides us.
The food is excellent country fare.

The Morehouse house ~ 1820

St. Mark's Church ~ Anglican ~ 1890

The Grant Store ~ 1890

The Perley House ~ 1870 ~ Country Gothic Revival

"The name Kings Landing Historical Settlement was chosen for the Kings
American Dragoons, a regiment of loyalists in the American Revolution,
and 'Landing', for a stopping point or wharf where boats could tie up."
~ from the pamphlet.

I have a few (I took 200) more photos to share another day.
This is one of my very favorite places to spend the day.  It's like taking
a step back in time.  I can wander the lanes and houses, breathe in the
wood smoked air, enjoy a nice meal at the Kings Head Inn, sit on a bench and watch
people, catch the wagon ride, and pretend I'm living in another time and place.

I'm joining Mary for:

I hope you'll join me there and I'll be back with more from Kings Landing soon.

  5. Hi Pamela
    I love historical villages like this. Life was simple back then but the women worked harder without the luxuries we have.

  6. Beautiful photos --- love your new header. I always like pictures of white fences, or any fences... something about the rhythm of them? It looks like a wonderful time with your grandson. Your week sounds busy--I'm so worn out from summer I'm not quite ready for everything to start up again, but my week sounds like yours! Have a good one!


  7. Beautiful photos of a beautiful place. I hope to visit again one day. I want some of that amazing bread! (I know, I can't stop talking about it. ☺)

    Take care-Kimberly

  17. A very interesting spot. The Perley House is especially lovely! We went to Orwell Corner,here on the Island, this summer - it's similar but much smaller. I'm fascinated by those times although I'm glad I don't live back then!
