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.
