Historic Homes in Greenfield Village

Henry Ford moved several historic homes to the Greenfield village, including his own childhood home:

Then there was the Wright brothers’ childhood home and their bicycle shop. Just a couple of months ago, I read a book The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. And now I remember that the author visited Greenfield village, but when I read the book, I didn’t pay attenention.

This bike is one of the actual bikes from the Wright brothers’ shop

Love this kid’s chair!

Then there was Thomas Edison’s Machine Shop

And the laboratory, which he declared to be replicated 99,9% accurate except for it was never that clean!

Since I am trying to publish this blog post for the fourth day and keep being distracted, I think I should stop here and maybe post more photos later!
