Are you in a bad rut due to the Coronavirus?
Over the weekend we took a trip to historic Pioneer Village in Salem, Ma. If you ever want to do something different and get a sense of how our forefathers lived, before the age of Boston condos, I highly recommend taking a ride up to Salem this summer on a lazy Sunday afternoon and visit Pioneer Village. Afterward, take s short walk to Salem’s Forest River Park.
The village is open this weekend! Reduced occupancy self-guided tours are available every 10 minutes from 12-4. Face-masks and social distancing are required.
Built-in 1930 to mark the tercentennial of Massachusetts, Pioneer Village is America’s first living history museum. The village sits on three acres of land and contains various examples of colonial architecture: dugouts, wigwams, thatched-roof cottages, and the Governor’s Faire House. Culinary and medicinal gardens and a blacksmith shop further interpret early 17th-century colonial life.
Pioneer Village is nestled between the woods and the ocean, a ten-minute drive from downtown, in Salem’s Forest River Park.
Saturday and Sunday 12-4
