Pioneer Village, Salt Lake City

Today we went to an attraction called "this is the place", which is a park attraction based on where the Mormons first came to Utah.  It is a reproduction of their first town complete with barber shop, hospital, merchantile, school, etc.  Each building had period furniture and better yet, there were people in each building re-enacting the way they lived in the 1800's.  It was really interesting because we went to the blacksmith's and saw them making items, went to the tanner and saw how they treat animal skins, went to the bank and got to see what the currency looked like at that time.  I didn't know that each state or territory had it's own currency.  Sometimes I wish we could go live in another time period for a short time, say 1 week, just to see and experience how life was at that time.  Hope you enjoy the pictures !
