Dickens of a Christmas at the Ohio Village

I know I said I’d be taking a break but we had so much fun at A Dickens of a Christmas at the Ohio Village, I just had to write down what we did! Each historical building has been relocated to create a little slice of the 1860’s next to the Ohio Historical Society. When we entered, there was even a sign that the Ohio Village has it’s own hastag (#ohiohistory) although I’m not sure it’s period 🙂 I haven’t been since I was a kid and M had never been so I made sure we made time to check it out!
