Hi there. Welcome back to our tour of Kings Landing Historical Settlement. If you missed the first 'episode' please scroll down to 'older post' at the bottom of this one so you won't miss out on all I shared there.
Our next stop was to visit Mrs. Heustis at her home. She is a dyer and spinner of wool. We found the engaging Mrs. Heustis in her kitchen carding and spinning wool to make into something lovely and warm for the winter ahead.
A few snaps from Mrs. Heustis's kitchen - including natural elements for Thanksgiving decorations, a peak into her pantry, dyed wool, and spun wool ready for knitting.
This is the view from her window looking out at the barn and river behind it.
Clean up crew in the barnyard. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it. :)
Stopping for a chat.
Then moving on his way.
This old gristmill grinding stone was laying near the grist mill. It looks like it had gotten overgrown with trees and brush and was recently discovered again.
Inside the grist mill an interpreter explains how the mill works.
The Jones House in behind the trees is the only stone house in the settlement and was taken down from its original site and each stone marked and the house rebuilt. It's my favourite house here.
This little pony was so friendly. They offered horseback rides here this summer.
Well we are nearing the end of our walk through Kings Landing and the wagon is heading over to The Kings Head to pick up the last load of passengers at day's end.
Near the entrance is a small play area with these 'horses' for children to ride on and simple toys and pumpkins in the sand box.
I hope you enjoyed our visit to Kings Landing. If you're ever in New Brunswick on holiday you should add this to your list of things to see and do. It will take 2 - 3 hours to really enjoy the tour especially if you visit every house or building. You can catch the wagon and ride to the end and walk back or vice versa. Wear comfortable footwear and clothing for the weather (a hat is a good idea on a hot day). Don't forget your camera! Kings Landing is located just off the Trans Canada Highway at Prince William about 20 minutes west of Fredericton NB. There is a tourist information building just off the highway near the entrance which is built like a barn. I have done many posts in all seasons if you'd like to see more. Just click on the label at the bottom. If your hungry, The Kings Head offers fine meals and beverages. There is an Emporium (store) in the welcome building selling local products, crafts and snacks. FYI - the site is now closed for the season.
