Random Colonial Trivia

Log cabin Pictures, Images and Photos

The Swedish colonists of Delaware were the first to begin building LOG CABINS with stone fireplaces OUTSIDE of the cabin. This model spread throughout the colonies and into the western frontier. Most other colonies of the time had homes made of thatch that were prone to chimney fires.

{Hmmm....we're having so much fun sharing our random Japanese finds that we may make this a common blog feature - Random Homeschool Trivia. }

Here in PA, I am about 10 minutes to the DE border, there are several Swedish Cabins. We've never been there but maybe next school year. We have seen several of these types of cabins at Valley Forge before. They are really cool!

That would be so fun, Laura.

It does seem, Anita, that we should make use of all the trivia rattling around in our minds. LOL
