The house on the farm
"Farmhouses of the 1860's were the monuments of the times and the men who built them. There were houses of sod and adobe and houses of logs, columned plantation houses of brick or clapboard and ornate Victorian houses with fancy fretwork. Variety there was if nothing else, for more than anything they reflected the resources of time, money, skills, imagination, and materials that were available."
