I mentioned a couple weeks ago that we went to a Civil war batter re-enactment in Ravenswood, WV but never posted the rest of my photos from that day.
Ravenswood is a pretty Ohio River town, once a bustling center for river traffic, then the bedroom community for the local aluminum plant. George Washington claimed many lands along the river, and his camp was just upriver on the Ohio side. We visited there last August, a beautiful, quiet spot.
The ladies, dressed in period attire, had set out a lovely tea. I so wanted to go and look at all the pretty dishes, but Larry restrained me. Not polite, to turn over dishes and look at the markings!
I had never been in the log cabin located in the park. It was open so we joined others in poking around in there,

You can see a bit of mine here. Sadly it fell to pieces and is now in a corner of the garage, a pile of wood and iron.
A quiet corner for the woman of the house to do her spinning. In the left corner is the quilting frame.
The museum was also open, and had many visitors while we were there. This photo is from the Jackson County Historical Society page.
The street ends at gthe old ferry landing. The ferry was still in use when I moved here, but the new bridge over the river put it out of service.
