Christmas Candlelight Tour
Quoting from the Wentz Farmstead Society website, "The Peter Wentz Farmstead was established in 1744 by Peter and Rosanna Wentz. By 1758 they had completed the large, Georgian-style stone house with many architectural features that reflected their German heritage, including interior paint decoration throughout." When you live in a city that only has a history back to the mid-1800s, it is interesting to see a farm that is almost 100 years older than the oldest buildings. On the other hand, we like to visit Pueblo Grande near downtown Phoenix, Arizona, a ruin of a 1,500 year Hohokam village. It sometimes helps to get some perspective on age.
