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."

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.
