Description 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."
