The Hearth

There is a hearth, or fireplace, inside Lorenzo Carter's cabin. In Carter's time, this area of the log cabin was at the heart of the family's existence. It provided food, heat and comfort. Look around at the other artificats and think about how these objects were used in the daily life of pioneers.
