Word of the Day

The word of the day will be a special word from the 19th century that is no longer or rarely in use today. For September 2nd is Chirk: cheerful, chirp, or chirpy "She is not very chirk, but more chirkier than the hand been; and all our folks appear more chirkier than they really feel, in order to chirk her up" from the Yale Literary Magazine, 1843

We are all quite chirk here at the Genesee Country Village and Museum, come join us!
