Farmstead of 1850’s in Arkansas

 This Farmstead museum is planted in Little Rock Arkansas and is quite a surprising sight 
nestled among skyscrapers. 
It reminded me of a children’s book we used to read wherein a small family house 
has a whole city grow up around it. 
Soon it is surrounded by towering buildings and many people.
 Cotton growing in the door yard.

 An open porch connects the two parts of the house, probably for shade and protection as well as to prevent fire from taking the whole house or heating the whole house in summer heat.

 Split rail fences with blackberry vines, strawberry plants and herb plantings, 
surround the property.

 Shuttered windows would make for some awfully dark interiors in the winter.
 Love these post fences.

 This homestead museum is located right in the city with busy streets 
and large buildings, hotels and stores all around.
 An outhouse behind the cabin and firewood pile.
 Note the skyscraper behind the cabin. 
I love how the logs fit together and notice that the logs were squared—not rounded 
and cut like Lincoln Logs
 This sign tells where the buildings originated. 
Wouldn’t you love to know the stories of the families who lived in them?

The barn’s logs were too open spaced. Lots of cold wind would have blown in, 
but in summer things would be cooler.
