2019 #VWEDU: A horse ride through Coopersville (MUVE) 1905. Go back in time a little over 100 years.

A horse ride through Coopersville (MUVE) 1905.  
Go back in time a little over 100 years.  

Coopersville is a MUVE (virtual world) model of a US town of the early 20th Century.  It has houses of that era (houses of the Victorian and Edwardian times), offers clothing of that period, has transportation of that period (streetcars, early Fords, and horses), plays music of that time (especially ragtime), and has the early flying things (Wright Flyer, hot air balloons).  Just right for a site visit by a class studying that part of history.

A livery yard or livery stable (Great BritainIreland), or boarding stable (AustraliaNorth America), is a stable where horse owners pay a weekly or monthly fee to keep their horses. A livery or boarding yard is not usually a riding school and the horses are not normally for hire (unless on working livery - see below). Facilities at a livery yard normally include a loose box or stable and access for the horse to graze on grass.
  • With the advent of the automobile after 1910, the livery stables quietly disappeared
