The only remnant of the former village that originated Belo Horizonte is this building. A typical colonial farmhouse of the region, it’s now a museum [in Portuguese] and keeps furniture, households, photos, a model of the original hamlet. It guards, also, an old steam locomotive and a streetcar. In the upper floor, the family lived and the lower one was for servants, storage and animals.

O único remanescente do vilarejo que originou BH é este edifício. Típica casa de fazenda colonial da região, agora é um museu e conserva mobílias, objetos domésticos, fotos, uma maquete da vila original. Guarda, também, uma antiga locomotiva a vapor e um bonde. No andar superior, vivia a família e, em baixo, os serviçais, animais e depósitos.
