Learn how the pioneers who came to this country built their first permanent shelters – hewing logs from the land into timbers and cutting half dovetail joints to make a sound log cabin that would become their home. Study the details of log cabins here on the grounds of Shake Rag Alley. You can have the experience using those hand tools and gain an appreciation and understanding for the skill and work that went into cabin construction. Have some serious fun while making a planter to take home and remind you of the techniques the pioneers used to build real log cabins. Materials and tools will be provided.
