Mt. Vernon, Illinois

You may remember last week when I posted this on my facebook wall:
I posted it because Brandon had a vintage base ball game in Mt. Vernon, IL.
The cool thing was that the Jefferson County Historical Village Museum sponsored the game. Mt. Vernon doesn't have an official team yet so this was a chance for those interested to get to play.
The village was right across the street from the ball field.
What you can't see from these pictures is that the field was really too small and not flat. The boys had a hard time because they kept hitting the ball into the cemetery. The Mt. Vernon players caught onto the rules quickly and seemed to have a great time. There was a massive crowd watching. People said they heard about the game in the newspaper and in church bulletins (it's a small town, hehe).

After the game, we were invited inside the museum. It wasn't much...
As you can see, there were some wedding dresses on display... meh... I'll take GW's Mt. Vernon anyday!
