If ever in Baton Rouge...

If you ever find yourself deep in the southern parts of Louisiana...

This place is a must see.

It's hidden in the heart of Baton Rouge and if you don't know it whereabouts... you'll pass it right up.

In between the hospital and huge state office buildings is a tiny  gravel road.

turn right...

Be prepared to go back in time.

Our River Road along the Mississippi River is known for grand plantations but this place here...

It the real deal ya'll.

How the average "Joe" would have lived.

You know... us worker bees

This magical secret place I'm referring to is called LSU Rural Life Museum.

It's a hands on kinda place where you can stroll their grounds.

It's set up like just like you would have found it many years ago.

This would have been the main house.

Not a plantation but beautiful and perfect...

for us "normal folk" lol

I looked up and found this interesting.

Most of the porch ceilings I have found in the south have been painted blue.

This one was the sweetest pink.

This is how many houses were built back then..

They used a lot of material on hand like mud and moss.

The house below would have belonged to the overseer.
This person would sign a year contract with the property owner.
They would reside in the home and take care of the land and workers.

After just minutes of walking around...

It almost felt like home.

You forget you're in the middle of a huge city.

This barrel below was used to catch and hold rain water.

We picked the perfect weekend to visit!

This was their fall reenactment.

Volunteers of all ages dressed and played their part.

It felt like I was on the set of "little house on the prairie"

The old school house

Maddy was so in love with this place, she signed up to be a junior volunteer.

On the grounds they have a general store...

It's set up just like you would have found years ago.

You are free to walk around and touch and explore..

I love that!

And this piece.... the postal cabinet..LOVE!!

And just as we were about to par take in a wagon ride...

A war broke out!

to be cont..

  3. Oh, I have got to visit here. I have not been to Baton Rouge since I lived in Ponchatula-oh about 27 years ago. I have been all over Louisiana-have to come back at every three months or so-I get so homesick don't ya know!

  4. I love the Rural Life Museum! The best time to go is in the fall when the pumpkins are ready and it is a bit cooler. My husband really loved it, too.

  13. Most kids like to play games online at school.Thousand of students had access to computers at school and want to play single or 2 player unblocked games.
    This website has more than twenty categories to discover.Ofcourse you can play offline a lot of quality video mario games.
    I prefer online as these are free and most of them can be played in full screen.
    Many businesses and schools had restricted access to malicious or otherwise inappropriate websites on their networks. Anyway, a variety of proxy sites offer access to hard websites like flash or unity games.
    Many of these sites advertise specifically to children as a free and fun way to play kizi games at school.
    Although these games are normally blocked on the network by the operating system, the proxy server acts as an intermediary in that, to the network, it appears that the user is simply browsing the proxy site when he or she is actually playing games or are surfing on i8napropiate websites for adults or other.
    So using our proxy server you are able to play at work or at school and nobody know.
    No matter what you play puzzle, action, dressup,skill or solitaire card you can load all at any time.
    The website offer the oportunity to discover new or popular many flash, unity or html5 math games.If you like bookworm popcap game you can play it here on pc, tablet or ipad.
    To play it on smartphone you will be redirected to the mobile version where you play also unic games in single or 2 player and in full screen.
    Still there are available brain games who will help your brain to stay young and healthy keeping you away of disease.
    Most played are 2 player where you can chose to play it even in single player vs computer.
    No need to remember the mobile version adress ,just remember only the top domain and based on your device dimensions you will be redirected by browser.
