On our trip to Silver Dollar City for Pioneer Day, we visited the one-room schoolhouse. Then we went to the blacksmith shop. We got to see the stagecoach at Outlaw Run. After that we got to see the Weaving Studio. Finally, we got to visit the Casey/McHaffie homestead. Please read about our fun trip.
The Casey/McHaffie Homestead
The homestead that we visited was once owned by the Casey and McHaffey family. They had a very small house so the children would sleep in a hayloft. The hayloft would be above a living room. At night, the children would climb up and sleep on a mattress stuffed with straw or grass. There was no heating or air conditioning so they would all sleep close together on cold nights.
Out of all the places we went to, the homestead was my favorite. We had a fun time!
