The Ukrainian Village opened their new Galician Settlers Farmstead today.
Visitors now get to see the traditions, building style, furnishings and farming practices that made Galician-region (Austro-Hungarian) settlers distinct from other Ukrainian settlers.
"The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village opened the Galician Settlers Farmstead which is comprised of the Hlus house, Hlus bar, Hlus chicken coop and the Lakusta barn and granary," said David Makowsky, director of the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.
Makowsky added the new farmstead is comprised of original structures that come from Innisfree and Amelia-Cookville, which will join more than 35 current buildings.
The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village welcomes around 44,500 visitors each year.
