Spring Mill State Park

68 Comments

Revisit history in Mitchell Indiana at Spring Mill State Park Historic Village or commune with nature on the many hiking or biking trails and if you love space travel stop in at the Gus Grissom Memorial. I adore this place so I took Eric here today and wanted to share the photos. Hope you enjoy.

  4. Thanks for the tour! Love the stone and log buildings, the stone wall and arch, the quilt, the old bed, and Eric trying to stand up in that room. Either’s he’s tall or that room is short.
    Thanks for this post, Elizabeth.

  5. A park and a museum all in one, or so it seems. Of course I went straight for the shoes but lots of beauty here. Will have to look more carefully when I’m not on my iPhone.

  6. It looks lovely and a park as well, what a lovely day out. I so like to see it when old buildings are treasured for future generations to enjoy 🙂

  7. Great pictures, Elizabeth. Reminds me a little bit of Sturbridge Village in MA but on a larger scale. It’s fun to go back in time and see how people lived. Beautiful place to walk around and spend the day. Hope you’re well!

  8. I’m doing okay, Geralyn. Thanks for asking. 🙂 I love the place and would like to visit Sturbridge Village. I’ve always wanted to visit Colonial Williamsburg too. Maybe some day since my sister-in-law lives in Williamsburg. I guess these types of places wouldn’t appeal to everyone, but they sure are my cup of tea. Hope you’re feeling energetic and happy, Geralyn. xo

  14. I so enjoyed this post Elizabeth! Thanks for the link to the State Park but I enjoyed your shots more. I really got an idea of what it must have been like to live in one of the cabins in the 19th century. I see Eric is quite tall (and handsome!!). If he had had to live there he would have ended up with a stoop or a crick in the neck! A grand day out. Take care and enjoy your week-end xx

  15. It was a glorious day to be sure, Clare. And yes, Eric is quite tall. It was so funny seeing him walk around the room with his head all bent over. I’ve never liked being a shortie, but there are some advantages. 😀 Have a lovely weekend. ❤

  28. Glad to see that you’re having an adventurous Summer! Have been looking for you in my lists of “follows”, but didn’t “see you” and began to worry that you weren’t feeing “up to par”….Glad to see that you’re ok!!! Nice pics, Kiddo! (PS I started working on my “artistic side” and have “done” 2 pictures using pastels. I’m thinkin’ I may be the next Picaso, so you better be prepared for some competition!!!! :)p

    • You’re such a thoughtful lady, Lucie. I appreciate the good thoughts. ❤ Now for your news. That's freakin' fantastic! I haven't been around much and I'm hoping in the next few weeks all will be done and I'll post about it. Now I'm going to gallop over to your place and you better have those pastels posted so I can see the new Picasso. 😀

  30. Elizabeth, this looks like a great place to visit. Love the pictures, they gave me a great visual tour and reminded me of a park my dad worked at when I was a teenager, Collier Park in Oregon. Thanks for sharing!

  31. Bonjour ou Bonsoir

    Une petite HALTE par chez toi

    Coucou bon lundi

    Ma GENTILLE

    Pour Moi
    Le temps est le meilleur bâtisseur de l’amitié
    Il est aussi son témoin et sa conscience
    Les chemins se séparent, puis se croisent
    mais une amitié sincère peut être éternelle
    je te souhaite une très belle et bonne journée
    Que mon petit passage te soit profitable dans tous les domaines

    Bisous plein de douceurs amicales

  32. Bonjour mon Ami ou Amie ELIZABHET


    Le sourire c’est un rayon de soleil
    Comme un brin de lumière
    Qui descend sur la terre
    Il apporte dans le cœur
    Un instant de bonheur
    Bonne et agréable matinée
    Avec une superbe journée

    Belle semaine à venir

    Bisous

    Bernard

  33. Bonjour du jour ELIZABETH
    Quelque soit ta ville
    Je sais que tu me souris
    La distance n’existe plus
    Le temps est superflu
    Un échange avec toi , c’est un cadeau
    Et même si cela semble fou
    Je te souhaite une belle journée
    Une belle fin de semaine
    Que ta demeure soit de rires et de joie
    Remplit de lumière

    Gros bisous
    BERNARD
