The first time I saw this village ten years ago I was sad.  Not because of any emotional thing but because I didn't have a camera.  Fortunately this time I brought a camera.  And I am so pleased that it didn't change in the past ten years.  The city is starting to encroach but hopefully the village will be able to keep it at bay for as long as possible.  It was in 1733.  The first thing I noticed ten years ago was the height of the doors.  And the charm of the village spoke to me in general. 

This is the schoolhouse there, I wonder if the children might still use the school.  

Look at how short the doors are on these houses.  Most of the houses in the village were built before 1840.  These I believe were most likely built before 1800.
