Good Fences at the Folk Park Pt 4


So this is as close as I can come to New England in the Fall.  In the Ulster American Folk Park, the idea is that you experience the journey many made from Ireland in the 1800's when they emigrated to the New World and settled in America.  You 'arrive' in the New World via a replica dry docked boat and then the museum has recreated typical housing and buildings from Pennsylvania and West Virginia and the newest home is the Tennessee Rogan Plantation house.

The fencing has even been recreated. Below is the original stone house built in Lancaster county PA by Samuel Fulton who emigrated from Donegal in 1724.


The day was perfect to enjoy the fall leaves.



A special piece of America in Northern Ireland!

Linking with Tex' Good Fences where you can see fences from around the globe.



Many thanks for coming by and commenting!

  11. Wonderful pictures. The first one is my favorite.
    We've made some of those zig zag fences and I have one around my garden. We used small trees that we cut down at HT.

  12. This is wonderful Christine. Those split rail fences are very popular here and the closest can be seen in Manassas which is not too far from us. I love your photos, so pretty and definitely a place I would enjoy walking around. I found out last year that some of my relatives came from Ireland and some also settled in the New World in the mid 1600s. I also have relatives via my sister's husband whose brother moved to Ireland and married an Irish lady and they live in Carickmacross and Bally Bay. I was lucky enough to visit them before I got married, many, many, many years ago :)

  27. Those split rail fences are the perfect structure to accompany the fallen leaves. The light on the leaves in the third image is simply beautiful.

  28. Some of those fences look like the ones in Idaho where they get lots of snow.
