HART SQUARE






























































































































































































A wonderful 1840's log cabin village reproduced in Catawba County, N.C. Dr. Robert Hart has spent many years seeking out old log structures and bringing them to his property, reconstructing them and filling them with early wares...all to preserve a part of North Carolina history. One day a year, this property is open to the public (3,000 tickets are sold) to share some of that history. Yesterday, Giles and I made the trek to the village to see what 'new'/old cabins have been added since our last trip. What a treat!
