An Amazing 1860s Log Farm


I love history. There are certain historical periods that have always resonated with me and that is probably why I love everything old. I am forever thinking of the stories a piece or place could tell if only they could!

Yesterday I had the chance to visit an amazing log farm established in the 1860s. It was built around the time of confederation in Canada and being able to see how this beautiful place was really amazing.

I couldn’t help but marvel at the engineering it took to build these structures and how well they have held up over time.

The structures and designs were simple but effective and lovely.

Everything was made from something natural or taken from nature. It was the very essence of what upcycling and bringing-the-outdoors-in is.

The man-hours, craftsmanship, and durability always impress me.

And the best part was… it was still a working farm. Check out these cuties!

I laugh whenever I see the picture above. Can you see the little feet peeking out from beneath the wood? Someone found the perfect hiding spot!

It was the perfect way to spend a late summer day… roaming, remembering, and appreciating.
I hope that you are enjoying these late summer days as well ♥
