Oct 13 th, Elijah Clark State Park… part two

As I was walking around his home place, I wondered what he looked like,also what kind of man he really was. According to the encyclopedia,he had a very strong,driven personality. He was a poor,illiterate frontiersman who married Hannah Herrington. It seems from reading that he had a real fondness for fighting, one of the wars that he fought in was the Revolutionary war.

Here are pictures of  the old home place…


  
  
I love the stone chimney and the shutters…look how they dovetailed the logs !

  
Here were some signs that were interesting.. the museum is open to public during a set time,which I missed.




And that, my friends ,is a short insight of Elijah Clark. The park is a lovely place to visit!


Have a great day! Deb
