Over 90 students from Blessed Sacrament School got an up close look Friday morning at the Log Cabin Village on Quinsippi Island.
The students from Kindergarten-4th grade visited 10 different sites in the village, where volunteers will tell about life in the 1800s.
The sites included the following with their hosts:
Entrance Sign - Roger Leach - talk on settling the area after War of 1812, how the village came about, and why the Log structures were moved to the site
Smoke House - Eleanor Yackley - talk about how early settlers preserved their food by smoking (show meat hanging from hooks) and talk about how they would have stored their food using a nearby spring
Herleman Cabin - Caroline Collins - talk about living in a log cabin, show the hatchet/axe marks on the logs that date to the 1800's, may try to get a wash board or some other pioneer items from Sullivan Antiques so you can talk about washing clothes or something they would have used.
