Shaker Village was such a magical place! It was so inspiring to see the simplicity of their lives recreated. There were so much to see! I took so many pictures that I will have to share them all in another post. I wish we could have saw everything but their were so many things to see it will take another visit there to get it all in. The food was divine. I was so hungry by the time we ate I didn't have time to take a picture. I dined on chicken and rice soup and corn sticks for my appetizer. The main course was a rib eye steak with roasted potatoes, green beans and rolls. I had ice cream for dessert. We ate by candlelight and enjoyed everything. They also brought us two shaker delicacies, salsify casserole and watermelon rind pickles. I was a little scared to try those but my sister tried the casserole and informed me it was similar to a potato. The following pictures are of the house we stayed in. We were 1/2 mile from the village totally isolated. Oddly my sister found a journal in the old secretary in the living room from several guests that had lodged in the house. The journal went back several years and several guests had documented seeing a ghost! Yes! A GHOST! Her name was Polly and she was a friendly ghost that was often seen in the room I was staying in no less. But thank heaven's I never saw Polly and she never made a peep!
