This Pricketts Fort WV album is like a time travel into early settlers lifestyle. Workers at the fort spend their days just as our early pilgrims did. I hope you enjoy these pictures taken during my daughter's day visit at this West Virginia State Park.
You might call Prickett's Fort a living museum. And it is the perfect place for a day visit on a summer afternoon.
On my visit to the park I only got two good pictures because the park was closed. But thanks to my daughter and granddaughter you can enjoy a real walk through one of West Virginia's notorious state parks.
Each thumbnail you see here opens into a gallery right on this page. Use the "Next" and "Previous" buttons near the top of each picture to see the next image in line.

This is one state park that is so much fun for the kids. They love going around and seeing how people work for real.
The fort is set up as an exact replica of a time in history when the settlers first arrived in these West Virginia hills. You feel as if you are getting a taste of how they lived.
And the workers are happy to stop and answer your questions with a smile.
Each building inside the fort is set to look and feel just the way it felt to the early settlers.
They had a meeting hall where community issues or church services were held to keep peace and strength at home.
There are shops for workers and shops for gift buyers to carry a memory or two home with you.
Step back outside and see the potter's shed.
Or check out how their gardens grow. Settlers and soldiers alike had to eat too.
Then be sure and follow the path in the woods where you can stop by the cemetery or just walk down memory lane for the fun of it.
If you think a family vacation is in order, you might want to check out the official Pricketts Fort State Park web site for more information.
