In the sleepy community of Moodus, Connecticut, an idyllic 19th Century village lies deserted.
In the mid-20th Century, Raymond and Carole Schmitt, Victorian-era collectors, transformed the industrial mill area of Johnsonville into a 100-acre outdoor museum.
For decades the public enjoyed Christmas displays, weddings, demonstrations and performances at 'Johnsonville Village' Today the museum is a ruin, closed for over 15 years.
