I love living history museums, so when we learned about the Greenwell Store, I was happy to take a look. We visited on Thursday, but we weren't able to get there in time for the Portuguese sweet bread baking activity. That would've been fun, too, to get to help prepare the bread and bake it in the oven. But, we were there at the right time to purchase the bread that came out of the oven. A table was set up in front of the Greenwell store around 1 pm, so, even before checking out the store, we wanted to make sure we got our bread. This isn't a review about the bread, but I just have to say that if you get a chance, buy the bread. It's only $7, and it's delicious. Normally, I'm not much of a bread person, but, I tried this bread and really liked it. I wish we had bought at least another bag. I had to be polite and save some for the husband, but, if left unattended, I would have finished it all. It's good. When we arrived at the Greenwell store, we were greeted by a very nice lady who gave us background on the person and family whose store we were visiting. It was very engagingly presented, and then we were taken into the store where we had the chance to "shop" for items that various people might have been looking for during the time the store was in operation. On our tour, we were shopping for a goat farmer and his family. The concept is a neat one that encourages visitor interaction. Another nice thing is you can take as many pictures as you want. It's a fun place, and the volunteers there do a great job. Admission is $7. I recommend a visit to the Greenwell store, and especially on Thursday -- you must try the bread!
