Doors of Kings Landing

Back in the ’70’s, plans for a dam on the beautiful St John River in New Brunswick threatened a group of 18th Century buildings. Some bright spark had the idea to move them out of harms way. The result is s vibrant, living historical village.

We visited on a very hot holiday Monday and all the doors were thrown open to welcome a bit of breeze as well as us visitors.

The delightful staff not only welcomed us into their homes and places of business, they drew us in the 18th village with the play acting. We were encouraged to lend a hand to help with the chores. Because it takes a village to … well … make village.

    I love this type of place. We went to one in Toronto. It’s great to know these beautiful old buildings are safe for the future.

    Love the salmon colored one with the black handle – handsome. But, the barn door makes me want to volunteer to take it down and fix it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The weathered barn takes me back to my grandparents farm where they stashed all sorts of ‘treasures’.
    love it!
