Western Travel - Log Cabin Village (Part Five) - 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 Blacksmith Shop and the Reynolds Smokehouse. Today we'll stop at the Schoolhouse.

The Marine Creek community built the Marine School in 1870's on Fort Worth's Northside on Commerce Street. There's a neat photograph from 1897 on the UNT Texas History portal: texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth38551/. Also more information can be found on the village's website: www.logcabinvillage.org/tour-marineschool.html

The School Bell...

Cute Signs for Both the Teacher and the Student
The Student Benches and the Dunce Chair in front (where naughty kids sat)
A later example of a student bench
On the very right you can see the central heating unit (a wood-burning stove).

Interesting lamp
