Yesterday, we visited the Fort Museum Frontier Village in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Our weekend road trip for FastCAT and barn hunt took us to the Fort Dodge area, and we thought this museum looked like a fun spot for some photos. We don’t know if it is dog friendly as we stopped in before it was open on Sunday, but it had some fun stuff.
The wood carving out front was interesting. I guess there were Indians around when the old village was a real place. There are no gates around the village, so we just went in and sniffed around.
Mom, of course, thought we needed a photo at the jail. Neither Olivia nor I understand why she would think such a thing. We are good girls. For us the best part about the entire village is the critter smells. We are pretty sure rabbits live under many of the buildings.
Old wagons are always fun to find. Can you imagine what it would be like to travel by horse and buggy? I bet the poor dogs back then had to run along side the wagon and not in the wagon. We hear dogs used to be treated more like common animals, shocking actually!
Mom likes the blue door on this little old building. Since it also has a bench, guess who got to sit an pose?
The wagons were too tall for Mom to lift us in, but this old one has a side shelf thing where I could sit on. It was a bit wobbly, which made me nervous, but I managed to hold on for a nice snapshot.
Being Sunday, one has to pose at the front door of the church. They must use the little logs to hold the doors open when people go in and out.
The Fort Museum Frontier Village was fun to visit and has some cute things. Our favorite is this bench. If you look at the sides and the back behind us, you will see it is made with wagon wheels. Such a cute idea! If you are in the Fort Dodge area, you might want to stop by and check out this cute little old village.
