Visions of the Past


On Wednesday, hubby and I visited the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh for a lovely Fall visit.

So today for Five on Friday I'll share just five of the many photos I took of this wonderful museum, which takes you back in time to the 1840's when the potato famine forced many to emigrate and settle in the New World.

This is a typical American frontier home from Pennsylvania  complete with picket fence! LOVE!


Inside was free and airy on this sunny October afternoon.


The back room served as the kitchen and pantry and had this great old stove and original tin punched pie safe in the background.
Primitive bliss!


Jars of pickles and preserves made colourful additions to the shelves.


Also laid out on a table in the living room were examples of quilt patterns on pillows and a quilt frame can be seen beyond that. Just beautiful!


Hope you enjoyed this quick peek into the primitive past!

Please visit Amy for more Five on Friday HERE

Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Loving history as I do I so enjoyed seeing these photos. I wish we could go back to colonial days and see first hand the hardships, joys, and simple way of life.

    Happy Weekend. Prudence sends her love, of course.

  22. Looks like a really neat park to visit, so sad this had to happen and people had to leave their homeland, it must have been quite scary. Love the quilted items :)
