Victorian Era Couple Live Like It's The 19th Century | Extraordinary People | New York Post

  • Published on Feb 7, 2019
  • On this episode of Extraordinary People, a quirky couple is obsessed with the Victorian era. Sarah and Gabriel Chrisman wear 1880s-inspired clothing, cook with a wood stove and live their everyday lives, in Port Townsend, Washington, as if it’s the 19th century. “I found a way to do a little bit of the time travel,” said Sarah, a writer. She and her librarian husband - who rides a penny-farthing bicycle around town - hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be.

    I mean technically they can still drive a diesel car because the first diesel engine was invented in the 1890's. (Going off the fact that they are ok with using electricity for their house)

    2:40 sorry lady you're an idiot if you believe that... Just because you enjoy something more doesn't make it easier or better. Controling an electric stove is easier than a wooden one? No...

    I think it's awesome. Most of us dream about this. They're actually doing it. Today's technology does nothing but corrupt your brain.

    I’m curious if she wears the cloth belt when she’s on her monthly thing since they want to live in the past. Wonder how that works for her.

    Harpers Ferry West VA, they do this year round. I stayed in a hotel at the the top of the town and it was exactly as it was in the mid 1800's. No TV and no phone. Best night of sleep I ever had

    Ok I have a theory. So my theory is that the reason so many people are right handed is because in the Victorian era, teaching kids how to write was hard if they were left handed (smudging) so they killed off any children that were left handed. So that’s why most are right handed.

    I find it extremely amazing when grown ups conserve that bit of themselves from when they were younger and continue to let it live with them. When I was little I always wanted to go to Hogwarts (silly right?) and now I’m 22 and my house is filled with decorations that make me feel like I’m in hp! It may be silly but they’re happy and if everyone was like that the world would be a different place

    Common misconception, handkerchiefs actually weren’t invented till the 20th Century. Back in the 19th century all they had to blow their noses with was 80 grit sandpaper

    I think it's wonderful that they want to be as authentic as a Victorian couple. but if they intend on having kids, I fully expect one of their kids to die before the age of one . and expect the husband to die before he's 50
