Hard Work

Imagine walking in the woods of Cleveland to find many straight logs of the same diameter to build such an important shelter, as Carter had to do upon arriving in town in 1797. At the cabin, feel the wooden logs and think about how much sweat and hard work it took to build it. The long, cold Cleveland winters that the family had to survive inside a wooden cabin such as this must have been especially difficult.
