Carriage Hill Farm
On our last day in the Dayton area, when the sun finally showed itself, we visited Carriage Hill Metropark, near our daughter’s home. This metro park preserves a 5 generation family farm that represents farm life in Ohio in the 1880’s. The farm operated from 1830 thru the first half of the 1900’s. The park is used for recreation and for learning about life on an Ohio farm.
We learned about the many people that called the farm home and how they lived and worked thru 150 years of farming. The pigs were particularly amusing but their pictures had to be edited to avoid an X rating for this post. The volunteer reenactors provided a great deal of information and background on the farm.
It was a quiet and very pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon.
