As you view the Log House, it will be easy to appreciate the challenges of daily living in the 1800s. Comfort was not the first priority in the life of a pioneer. For instance, trundle bed mattresses were often stuffed with dried grass and supported by stretched ropes. The supporting ropes had to be tightened often. This gives meaning to the words, “Sleep tight; don’t let the bed bugs bite.” This cabin is one of only a few remaining pioneer homes in this area.
