It also makes me think of some older reality shows that were all about history, once upon a time. When I was young I fell in love with 1900 House, which was about a reality series about a family living back in 1900. There were other versions of this show, involving other houses, other times, other families, and they were all fun and interesting.
I wonder now what happened to those houses, because I imagine they would make fun hotels.
Thanks to Evangeline over at Edwardian Promenade for the link to the first video.
