There are so many old buildings that just capture the imagination. Log cabins with odd additions or thatched roofs come to mind, but what about living inside a giant tree stump? These quirky old structures are unlike anything you’d see today – outside of an amusement park that is! But here’s the thing, folks actually lived in these houses once upon a time.
Since the birth of photography, subjects like unusual landmarks were the stuff of postcards and cabinets cards, so we’re lucky we have some photographic evidence of these wonderful old buildings which are pure magic. From cedar stumps to giant logs to shanty boats, these unique homes remind us of something from a folktale!
