Photograph: Unknown Log Home "When ponieer families were first established, domestic animals were scarce and often families were dependent upon the wild game nearby. Perhaps the boys in the picture were setting out to hunt with their trusty dog when the photographer came by; or perhaps they posed for the photographer with their most prized posession."

Photograph: Unknown Log Home "This early homesteader's cabin of logs with its bark left on is low and roofed with planks instead of "shakes." The rain barrel on the right caught water for washing and the wooden wash tub probably served as a bath tub too. The woman seems delicate and refined - ill suited to pioneer life. She probably came from a large city in the East. In time these pioneers adjusted to the hardships and laid the foundation for the communities we have today."
