mountain kin folk

This cabin is part of a historical setting at the Georgia Mountain Fair in Hiawassi. In the mid 1950's, I can remember visiting some distant relatives who lived in a cabin much like this. It was somewhat larger and had a porch running completely around the house, but it was made from logs with mud and straw filling the cracks. The honest, hardworking people who lived there were loggers -- cutting and hauling timber so the rest of us had building materials for our homes. And I remember them sharing a meal with us -- meat stew and cornbread. I wonder where their families are now......
