From the Cabin Porch: Lifestyles of Pioneering Times

If there was a “Way Back Machine,” would you visit the 1800s to learn how folks lived and survived?

Join Naturalist Lauren Cole at 4:30 p.m. at Chief Logan State Park’s pioneer homestead to hear about the history of the state park area, pioneers, homesteading lifestyles, and a bit about the structure itself. Cole’s program begins from the porch, and then steps inside for a short viewing of the inside of the structure. Cole will be at the cabin until 7:00 p.m. From the Porch is a Kids to Parks Day (and parents) activity.

Learn what it was like in a time when you had to build your own home from things you had available outside – without modern conveniences like motorized vehicles, power tools or air conditioners. How long could you go without a grocery story? plumbing? the internet?

From the Cabin Porch is free to attend and open to the public and suitable for all ages.
