Western Travel - Log Cabin Village (Part Seven) - 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 Seela Hands-on Cabin. Today we're going to explore Howard Cabin, built around 1860 by Hartsford and Susan Caroline Howard. More information about the cabin is available on the village's site (www.logcabinvillage.org/tour-howard.html) along with information on the restoration of this two-story building.

Interesting building...notice the large stone holding up the bottom corner

Another interesting door lock...

A few interesting odds 'n ends and bits of antiques that I found wandering the properties:
Plow Part

Wagon wheel

Plow Part

Not really an antique but it sure looked interesting...

Pots and Pans. Interesting factoid: families bathed infrequently and when they did the bathing was allocated by the person's age. So oldest to youngest. Babies and young children went last. So this is where the idiom "Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater" came from, or so they say...
