My Trip To Village Of Yester Years(usa) by Drenimarcus(m): 1:57am On Dec 07, 2019
Hi guys, i hope everyone is doing good and gearing for the holidays. I had a pretty rough week so i decided to go with my madam to go some sight-seeing and feed/feast my eyes. We threw lots and the village of yester years was what the gods wanted cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy
It was a pretty quick drive even though Minnesota cold was cry cry cry cry . It was a 20 minutes drive not helped with the folks shopping for hols.

The Village of yester-years as the Americans call it, is a setting of a basically a village of what and how the Americans lived during the 1700s to late 1900s. It consist of some houses,a general store, a post office, church, a train, a fire department, the baker's shop. To say i was amazed was an understatement because every house and items are/were still preserved. The village is opened from May 1 to September 30 for Tourists smiley smiley smiley(Nigeria needs lessons in this dept).

There is a pavement or walk path, it has all the names of everyone that has lived in the village and their names are etched or carved on a wooden path(e bust my brain shocked shocked shocked shocked). Dont let me bore you guys. Let me samayan you some pictures.

In Nigeria precisely. We don't preserve history. The orientation is bad.

I have been asking same question always. Son will destroy fathers house to build his own,grandson will continue with the same mentality.
We don't use vintage cars, we don't value them at all.
