Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, N.Y. on 700 acres has 68 19th-century structures that have been moved from their original sites, restored and authentically furnished. Costumed villagers portray 19th-century daily life, while craftspeople demonstrate spinning, weaving, cooking and other skills and crafts. The 1803 Walter Grieve's Brewery sports copper kettles and leather hoses and uses the same brewing practices as the early brewers to create their signature beer.
Nathaniel Rochester House, 1797 Dansville,NY. "...After five years in Dansville, Col. Rochester moved to a large farm in East Bloomfield, N.Y., and continued his work laying out what would become the Village of Rochester. In 1818, he and his family of 12 children finally moved near the falls into a house with a large garden and grounds sloping down to the river. In 1824, he erected a brick house on higher ground where he resided for the rest of his life."
