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.
