The great race, Coopersville: Hot air balloons and the Wright Flyer

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.

Thank you so much Selby for covering the race and Coopersville!

I'm grateful to Keith Selmes for allowing us to rez and use his awesome Wright Brothers planes. Selby has already written an article about Keith's region called, "Quayside".
