English Farm at Frontier Culture Museum….1650

This farm house was removed from England and reconstructed in museum area.  It shows what culture the early settlers to Virginia brought with them. It is the oldest farm in the museum.  When I noticed that the Elizabethan dress of the woman presenting information to the public, I realized just how old the house was.  A knowledge costume history occasionally serves me in some way or other.
