Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Heritage

I’ve posted a series of photos from a recent visit to the Slate Run Historical Farm.  Most of these are from the animals that we encountered, but here are a couple of images that remind us of how a farm in the 1800’s would be run.

First, wood will need to be chopped year-round for cooking, and in the winter months for heat:

Chopping Wood

And the wind will be used to dry the wash:

Clothes Line

These are but two examples of the traditions and practices that we are reminded of when we visit historic places.  For me, these places serve as reminders of the past and reminders that for those of us with electricity and heat, how good we have it today.

And for this specific purpose, they are my response to the Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Heritage from Across the Bored.

    Pictures like these always remind me of how my own ancestors must have lived not really that long ago… so glad I don’t have to do laundry by hand.Thanks for the entry!
