Update! Philomenaville, One of the Best Period Builds in Second Life, Will Stay Open Under NewOwnership

Update:  Thaddeus Nadeau has just released the news that Philomenaville will not be closing and that new owners have been found. Please check out the Philomenaville web site for details. 

The Town of Philomena, or Philomenaville, which is a virtualization by a classic American town of early 20th century, will be closing on May 31.  Founder Thaddeus Nadeau broke the news to me this morning; you can read his announcement here.

I enjoyed photographing Philomenaville many times since its opening in the Summer of 2014, and am a bit saddened by the announcement - however, things change in Second Life, and the closing of a favorite destination is something that has happened many times in my 8 years in Second Life.

I want to thank Thaddeus and the other contributors to Philomenaville for all the time and effort (and expense) in putting together this great destination, and wish them all the best in future endeavors.

Philomenaville is  a delight to visit and shop in for period antiques and art. You can visit through the end of this month here:
