Although it’s been on my Life Goals list for a long time to visit the Genesee Country Village and Museum, even before they started their Laura Ingalls Wilder event, but I’ve never made it yet. It been going for awhile though and this year there was enough of a report that I wanted to pass it along. Also note it is CountRy not County, that confuses some people when they are searching for it online.
The Host Site for the Event
First off, the museum focuses on living history and depicts time periods from 1795 to 1920. It has a relatively good reputation as a living history site, and as I said before I think it’s well worth visiting even if the event isn’t going on. I originally had thought it was closer to Malone than it was and hoped to incorporate it on a stop there, but it’s really quite a distance away from Malone. It’s in lower jut out section of the New York western boundary and Malone is near the top of the point near the northern boundary. So I didn’t get there on my Malone trip, although I think you could plan for it if you were willing to add another day to your trip.
Reports of the Day
There’s also a report on the food demonstration:
