The sweet taste of summer’s end – at Ameliasburgh’s Heritage Village

The Ameliasburgh Heritage Village welcomed County residents, friends and visitors on the last long weekend of summer. It remains open on weekends showcasing more than two dozen specific areas of interest.

Enno-as-shopkeeperPioneers made almost everything for themselves and what they couldn’t make, they would trade for items at the General Store. Here volunteer Enno Busse was the weekend’s shopkeeper. Between the 1850s and 1880s, there were three general stores in Ameliasburgh.

Girls had specific jobs around the house and also had fun hanging out with their moms as shown here by volunteers Brenda and Sarah Dettling. The cabin was moved to the museum in 1969 and preparations are now under way for its restoration.

    Very nice report. Cabins may have been circa 1860 but large homes were being built in 1815 i.e. Young-Woodward house at East lake.
