St. Peter's Village - Sunday In My City

St. Peter's Village is a small community with Victorian homes built in the 1860s.  Iron Mines, near  French Creek National Park, helped start this small community.
 In 2003 St. Peter's village was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Which is significant because ordinances prevent new construction in and around the village.
 Todd and I stopped at the local bakery.  It smelled wonderful!
 I got an Apple-Cranberry Tart.  It was delicious!
On the way back we stopped at an antique shop.  I loved the row of quilts on display.

 Thanks for stopping by! I hoped you enjoyed the tour.

  16. I did! It was a german pot that they would pour pancake batter out of. You'd never know that is what they used it for. It looks like a huge water jug with a tea pot like handle.

  18. love small towns... which is probably why I live in one. You can't construct anything new in our downtown core either. and many homes are "heritage homes" since we are back to about 1860 as well - at least that is when the established logging industry was settled - but there were others here prior to that date. And I really want some of that pie. :)
