Hands-On and Age Appropriate...

If you haven't visited Log Cabin Village lately, you're in for a real treat! We unveiled our latest educational endeavor at the end of September: the Seela hands-on cabin. Although it is sometimes billed as a cabin for kids, we have found that adults are enjoying it just as much (if not more).

The cabin is exactly as the name implies: completely hands-on. You can help fluff the feather ticking on the rope bed, prepare dinner at the hearth, try on clothes, and card some wool. We even have an outdoor area now, complete with a chicken coop and a pump to draw water. A garden plot and wagon loading area are in the works...so stay tuned! As one young visitor said in our guest book, "The best is the one to touch."

You will also want to check out our touch baskets available in each cabin. History is now hands-on!

Postscript: some of the winter honeysuckle is in bloom here at the Village. I always look forward to this time of year, because the air outside is literally SWEET! Seems early this year, but I'm sure Mother Nature is just as confused as the rest of us by this crazy Texas weather.
