Billie Creek Village in Rockville, Indiana
Billie Creek Village is an open-air living history museum about an hour west of Indianapolis. It just re-opened this year and they are working hard at bringing it back to life. It represents the 1800s and includes buildings from the 1830s. Most of the buildings were donated and moved to Billie Creek Village. There is a general store, two churches, a blacksmith and several other buildings. They are adding additional activities, including a musical group and hopefully an 1800s era baseball game.
In August I started volunteering there demonstrating spinning. I went with several of the other ladies from our spinning group (from left to right: Rachel, Becky, Me and Heather) and, since it had just poured rain, we set up in the governor’s house. This house was built in the 1850s and had three rooms. Despite being hot and muggy out the house was surprisingly cool.
