If you get a chance view Westville. It's a small town dedicated to the preservation of Historical homes from around the 1800's.
This town wasn't a real town back in the 1800's, but what makes it unique is the fact that all the homes and buildings are from that era and are open for people to view and walk through. They have no electricity but this town seems to function just fine without our modern comforts. They have a working cotton gin and little ladies who bake homemade ginger bread, biscuits and lemonade. And you get to watch everyone as they go about what would be normal every day chores for that era.
