Genesee Country Village & Museum is honestly one of the most amazing places I have visited in many years and I can’t seem to keep myself or my daughter away! We absolutely love it here. Located just 20 minutes outside of Rochester, NY, in Mumford, NY, this timeless taste of amazing delight is something everyone must experience. I will take you through a small bit of a tour I documented.
We were greeted by friendly faces, traditional dress, language and demeanor. This immediately stepped us back in time to the 19th century.
GCV&M has their own brewery. Quality and tasty brews and cider tastes are offered on their tour and available in their restaurants.
Tours of the timeless grounds are given by several people, all informed, knowledgeable, clothed and in character. It gave us a real sense of communication, style and knowledge.
We learned so much!
We learned about the buildings, those who lived there, how they came to be, how people lived in these times and what their lives were like. Walking through the village is quite breathtaking.
We learned quite a bit about food preparation, what was used, how it was stored and tasting these treats was quite special!
The chocolate wine was one of the best drinks I’ve ever tasted!
Lucky us that we had the most sensational red sky at the end of this evening.
Do I love it?
Not only was I beyond impressed with the presentation at GCV&M, but the people are so kind, helpful and clearly love their chosen profession. I am a wedding photographer and have recently featured them on my vendor list. With their horse-drawn carriage rides, apple orchards, catering, animals, barns and 170-year-old churches, it is an amazing place for a celebration, wedding, event or party!
