Duck Pond at Old Bedford Village

Old Bedford Village is not officially open in April, but it is available for special events and there was a muzzle-loading gun show on the Saturday that we were there. After a brief visit to the show to see the ornately-carved guns and some flint-knapping exhibits, we were able to tour the village. I was surprised to find most of the buildings open even though few staff members were around.

Normally the village features lots of folks wearing historical costumes but they are are not present in the off-season. (No, nobody really lives there. The village is a re-creation; the buildings are brought in from elsewhere and reconstructed.)
