Beyond the Village

Beyond the Sauder Village circle of a mid 19th century town are various additional historical replica buildings. These include Native American (Potowatomi) bark huts and settlers’ early cabins as well as a working farm. Seeing these areas is a reminder of how hard life was nearly a couple of centuries ago. Life was simpler (something we often wish for) but also much harder (something for which we have less longing). Hopefully these pictures will give you a few moments of reverie about those days of yesteryear.
