Since today is a special event day here at Log Cabin Village, it seems only fitting to use it as the day we kick off our brand new blog! Please stay tuned for exciting, intelligent, engaging, and maybe even interesting information about Log Cabin Village, museums, and living history in general. Don't be shy! Please post YOUR comments as well (Note...for your protection all comments will be read by Village staff before being posted)!
Yes...it is an event day. But as sometimes happens, Mother Nature has NOT quite cooperated. Rather than the hoards of eager scouts with their noses pressed against our wrought iron fence when we opened, we instead were greeted with rolling thunder and torrential rainfall. Well...it IS February. And while our event highlighting the "fiber arts" of the 19th century frontier is compelling, so is a warm fire and a hot cup of cocoa at home.
We did have 10 wonderful souls brave the elements to join us at our event today, including a lovely couple from Grand Prairie, TX, celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary. How wonderful that they thought of Log Cabin Village as the place where they wanted to spend their time together today. We feel fortunate when we can truly be a part of people's lives and experiences.
Another good point to mention...we're here RAIN OR SHINE. The only time the Village closes is if the weather is dangerous (i.e. ice, tornadoes, anvils falling from the sky). You can always call us to make sure...
Please keep checking in! And please subscribe to our blog via e-mail or in a reader. We hope to see you here soon!
