Four Stop Road Trip..... Third Stop


Spruce Forest Artisan Village

After leaving Deep Creek Lake, we headed for dinner. We had already decided to eat at a place called "Penn Alps" which is housed in the last log hospitality house on the National Pike still serving the traveler.

In addition to the restaurant, with its three dinning rooms and buffet, and a crafts shop, there is standing next to it a little village called "Spruce Forest Artisan Village". It is here that I made my third photo stop.

The first of the two photos shows the Glotfelty house, an original early American log home, which was moved to Spruce Forest in 1972 and restored. It is presently used as a Weaving Studio, but I could see me living there in my old age.

The second and larger building is known as the "Yoder House". It is a living history museum that offers the opportunity to experience life in an early American Amish home. The house was built in early 1900's.
