At the Rural Heritage Museum

Last weekend we drove to Washington County, Maryland. One place we visited was the Rural Heritage Museum, between Hagerstown and Antietam. It has a frontier farm set up in the back, and gardeners were there working.

A guide explained that the Reeder family built this cabin on their farm and lived in it while their larger house was built. Then this small cabin became a utility building where they did their laundry.


  1. Fascinating! Can you imagine living in that small cabin?

  2. I love that little cabin... but it would be very close quarters wouldn't it?


The View from Squirrel Ridge features thousands of views of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area. I post frequently so please visit often.
