Exploring a Historic Village

I drove to Herberton to explore the Historic Village I’d read about in tourism brochures. I entered, bought my ticket, was given a map and stepped out into the village. It felt like I had stepped back in time. I wandered along paths people of this historic mining village from 1880 would have wandered along many years ago. I tried to imagine them in their old fashioned clothes going about their daily lives.

I wandered inside and past a lot of places: a post office, a mechanic, a bank, a dress salon, a toy store, a grocery store, a school, a cottage and a fancy white house with a beautiful verandah surrounding it. The coach house was amazing. Each building had so many fascinating objects inside, it was astounding. Statues and figures wearing costumes of the time gave us a feel of what it would have looked like with people of the time inside. September 2 028 - Copy September 2 029 September 2 030 September 2 031 - Copy September 2 032 September 2 033 - Copy September 2 034 - Copy September 2 036 - Copy September 2 037 - Copy September 2 038 September 2 039 September 2 040 September 2 041 September 2 043 September 2 044 September 2 045 September 2 046 September 2 050 September 2 051 September 2 052 September 2 053 September 2 054 September 2 056 September 2 057 September 2 058 September 2 060
