A Drive to Spencerville

Took a drive south of Ottawa yesterday to see a wonderful Heritage Fair organised by the Spencerville Mill. Re-enactors from different groups converged to recreate events and life from the time of the War of 1812. Spencerville is a beautiful little town and the day itself was full of interesting things to see and do. The re-enactors, themselves, are a wonderful group of people always willing to talk about history and to help visitors feel as though they are a part of the day not just spectators.

Enjoy the photos in this gallery. I’ll have more later in the week…detailed information on the war, the re-enactors, and scenic shots of the area. Gotta love history!

Happy Monday.

  1. Very nice slideshow. I’m glad it worked on my phone. I loved the photo of the 2 boys fishing in particular.
    What a wonderful get away it must’ve been for you, from space and time :-)

  2. What lovely photographs! I was there, too, and you beautifully captured it. If I may; however, the correct spelling for those weapons is “muskets”. “Muscat” is a variety of grape.

    • Ha! Thank you, Helga! My spelling always was atrocious. I’ll fix it right away. :-) I’m glad you had a chance to be there too. Thanks for the compliment and for stopping by to comment.
