The villagers don't live in 1897, but the present. The village is actually a project devised by wealthy John Walker (Elder Walker). The village elders all suffered tragic losses in their modern lives. To escape violence, they started a village inside a wildlife preserve, walled off from society. The elders masquerade as the monsters to keep the younger and unknowing members within village boundaries. Lucius Hunt is seriously injured and needs medicine. The elders have sworn never to return to the 21st C, so Elder Walker sends his blind daughter, Ivy for the medicine. Surviving a perilous trek, she meets up with a security guard patrolling the preserve’s perimeter. He gets medicine for Ivy, and she returns to the village still knowing nothing about the outside world and believing she has killed a monster who tried to attack her. The guard was unaware people were living inside the preserve.

Ivy Walker: Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others will not know we want to do them.
Question: Does anyone know if Noah knew all along that the elders were dressing up as the "monsters?" I think he did, and that he thought it was just a game. Is that why he laughed and clapped every time the bell went off and they had to hide? Perhaps the elders didn't hide this from him because he was simple-minded and couldn't talk. So, when he went after Ivy in the woods, he thought it was all for fun. Does anyone else agree with this?
