On Monday November 30th, our class went on a walking field trip to Mount Gilead. The walk wasn’t too long but unfortunately we had to walk under the cold rain. Before we went inside the Mount Gilead house, we saw another smaller house that had 1900’s technology. I saw a washing machine and found it cool because it looked so different from the present ones. Once we got to Mount Gilead House, we got to look inside a 1930’s Sears catalog house from the New Deal. We had the chance to listen and ask questions to theĀ professor who gave us a tour in the house. The house was small but had thousands of books inside. I noticed some books were falling apart due to ageing too. One cool thing he told us was that there was a rumor about still hearing Penelope’s voice/cries in the house. I found it funny but pretty cool. The house was very old but very interesting. Also, when I went to the bathroom in that house, I noticed the doorknobs were so much different from today’s doorknobs. I found that cool because it shows how much are technology/housings/country has changed from back then.
