We were able to attend a field trip this week to Old Economy Village and we all enjoyed our visit. Our group was large enough that we were split into age groups - so Evan and Ann-Marie went with older groups while I hung out with the youngest group (which is why most of the pictures are of Alec). If you have a chance to go, I highly recommend the child's tour if you have school-age children. It was very well done and there were lots of hands-on activities so even Alec's age group didn't get bored.
No indoor plumbing? How about pumping your own water and carrying buckets on your shoulders with a yoke?
and printing. We also experienced bread-making and cooking in the communal kitchen. What a fun and educational day!
