I'll stop making these crazy posts about Pioneer Village, but I just wanted to post pictures of one more structure: the sod house. The layers are constructed of exactly that - SOD! If some layers started sinking during its creation, I guess they would just add more on top. Can you imagine? Walls made from layers of dirt with grass sticking out. And, it seemed to do wonders in keeping the heat out the day we visited. Hope it did just the same for the cold. This house - like a few others in the village - consisted of only two small rooms: one for eating and reading.... and one for sleeping. No matter how many family members lived there. Belongings were kept for only what a family absolutely needed. It's amazing how times have changed - and not necessarily for the good.
