The Homeplace at Land Between the Lakes

Right before we left for California we met up with my niece and her Grandparents who were staying in St. Louis for a few weeks. They travel all over for his job and often bring one of their grandchildren with them. My niece wasn’t going to be back in California before we visited there so this was the only way to see her.

We decided to meet up at the Homeplace at Land Between the Lakes. I had heard about it and had even planned a trip there in 2010 but it was during a heat advisory and as I was pregnant we decided not to go. The great thing is that because of the Military National Park Pass we were all able to get in free.

I am not sure if it was because it was a Sunday or what but we only saw two people dressed and acting the part of living on a farm in the mid-nineteenth century. This was pretty disappointing for us. Walking around the farm was interesting but I was really excited about seeing all the people there and then didn’t get to 🙁  I am not sure I would go back unless I had plans to be at the Land Between the Lakes all day and stopped by there on the way to whatever else we were planning to do.

Here are some photos of our day…

  1. It’s too bad it wasn’t ‘populated’ like you expected. I remember loving going to those ‘recreated’ villages and towns as a kid. I wonder if it has to do with the economy, or if they’re usually volunteers that play the parts? Regardless it looks like you had a beautiful day there making memories with family.
