From the Primitive Past


Whilst on holiday in Lancaster County PA, we visited the Landis Valley Museum.

It has a great variety of restored homes dating back to the 1700's with a vast collection of authentic pieces collected by the Landis brothers.


This was a lovely stone building which was an inn...


It was filled with many wonderful primitive pieces...


...and gave a great insight into how life went on back then.





Well worth a visit!


Best wishes!

  4. Your photos are lovely Christine... It was so interesting seeing how people lived. My husbands family settled in Lancaster after fleeing the persecution in France. There's a home and a cemetery that he visited there. The stone house is beautiful. I hope you're doing well! Have a blessed day.
