Western Travel - Log Cabin Village (Part Four) - Fort Worth, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

This week we continue our visit to the Log Cabin Village, in Fort Worth, Texas. Last week we looked at the Mill and the Herb Garden. Now we walk toward the Blacksmith Shop. Although it's not an original building but a reproduction, it contains a lot of interesting tools.

Continuing our march around the back of the village, we make a quick stop at the Smokehouse (where someone would have smoked their meats to preserve them for winter use). Build by the Reynolds family around 1854 in the town of Azle. A good picture of the restoration work and how smoking meat hung from the rafters can be found on the village's website: www.logcabinvillage.org/tour-smokehouse.html.
