Pioneer Cabin

Pioneer Cabin. This is an authentic pioneer cabin, located at Camp Joy in Clarksville, Ohio. The forefathers of our great nation built these homesteads with their bare hands. Every plank of wood in the floors was cut by hand. I've built a few items of furniture over the years, directly from fallen trees, and I know personally how much effort is needed to hew something from the forest. It's back-breaking work and almost unimaginable in our modern machine-driven lives. But from this great effort came the country we know today. Let's not forget.
