Last week I shared photos and highlights from the Country Living Fair held at the Ohio Village in Columbus. Needless to say, I took lots of photos and decided to divide them into two blog posts. This round of photos is centered on the historic buildings that you’ll find at the Village. Most had period furnishings inside and one had a docent. The buildings created a perfect backdrop for the Country Living Fair.
The first historic home we stumbled upon was this classic beauty with the white picket fence. That’s my hubby leaning on the fence wearing his shades. He was a good trooper all day while I looked at girlie stuff.
The wallpaper inside the Lodge looks similar to some I had in my home many years ago. You rarely see wallpaper now, most rooms are painted. But I remember back in the 80s everyone had wallpaper somewhere in their house!
Walking in the front door, you step inside the kitchen. In my town, this is often the case with the older homes … the front door opens into the kitchen, which I’ve always thought was strange but I’m sure there’s a reason for it.
I bought the Beekman Boys Heirloom Cookbook. It was the last one they had! The Beekman Boys were signing books in a nearby building, but the line was so long and slow that I passed on the opportunity to meet them.
If you missed part one, be sure to read about some of the other highlights from the Country Living Fair.
On another note, the Fall Home Tour via All Things Home continues through Friday this week. Check out my Fall Home Tour where you’ll see the full schedule of homes to visit. While you’re there, be sure to enter the Somerset Bay giveaway valued at $1500!
