Have you ever wanted to visit a museum or historical attraction where the artifacts are able to answer your questions? Do you want to travel back to the 18th century to see how different our world was, but not have to give up your phone and electricity? You're in the right place. 

The people here are not actors - they live the part and they are skilled at what they do. You'll meet people who built our nation such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry. Learn their history and how their legacy still shapes our world today. You will immerse yourself into an 18th-century city and learn about trades. You'll see the places where they worked and be able to ask any questions that you may have. Some trades that you will learn about and see are blacksmithing, carpentry, tailoring, silversmithing, and shoemaking.
