This week we want to take a look at the essence of our show and what we really want to bring to the table for you. That is to help understand how to raise a healthy family. We started with the importance of family bonding. Laura spent a day in Schubael Pioneer Village in Cannelton, Indiana to talk to some healthy families and their ties to these vintage cabins.

It would be a fairy tale to think of stepping in a home that was built by your great grandparents. What if someone cherished the heirlooms and history so much they dedicated ground to have the homes transported and preserved for your children and others’ children to come and enjoy? Now that really sounds like a fairy tale, right? Well, wishes do come true at least in a “Little” town of Shubael Little Pioneer Village in Cannelton, IN.

Such a sweet man dedicated his inherited farm to have cabins for families, and community buildings, such as: Merchantile, Jail, and a Blacksmith Post. All of this done with their own money and sweat to keep the spirit of pioneer days alive. Now families like we spoke with come and share their farm knowledge with others and have their children come and play (together) not online–outside!

My friend actually is related to a family that once lived in one of the cabins to my surprise! So I got to speak with her.
She is going to learn how to have her family host the cabin for events next year. That means dress and cook like a real pioneer!

 

Working hard is a part of being self-sufficient and self-reliable. It’s good to know how to create or make something new when you couldn’t just go out and buy it yourself. Maybe there is a pioneer village near you. If so, we want to hear about it and please send us pictures!

    The Pioneer Village in Searcy Ar hosted its Christmas in the Village open house this weekend inviting guests to come and experience a bit of Christmas in the late 1800s. Nothing quite sets the mood for Christmas like warm sugar cookies fresh from the oven. Volunteers helped bake over 1000 sugar cookies from this traditional recipe to hand out to the guests along with hot cider which was a welcome treat on this cool afternoon.
