This was a village that was set up by one Ray Schmitt. My family visited there, and we  enjoyed seeing the antiques and and period accoutrements. I hope that it can be restored and find a new life, now that it has a new owner.

Above are a fife and drum corps, no doubt inspired by the Ancient Muster in Chester, and a study of an antique house.
