Visiting Old World Wisconsin - Post 1-- Post 444 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

During our 2011 vacation to Springfield, Illinois and surrounding states, we had one day in Eagle, Wisconsin and explored Old World Wisconsin, and Ranslow's Smith's Four-Mile Inn.  I wrote about it in Day 13 on the Seaver Midwest Genealogy Tour (posted 18 September 2011).

1)  That's me in the entry doorway of the Four-Mile Inn, built in 1853 by my third great-grandfather, Ranslow Smith (1805-1873):

2)  The view from the corner of the house:

3)  My attempt at the "My Photo" thing from the corner of the house (the vintage photo is from 1930 on the site in Rolling Prairie):

I will have more photos from inside the Four-Mile Inn next week.
