A Visit to the Cook House

I just recently stopped by the Cook House in Wauconda for a quick tour.  It was very informative.  I've always thought I would like to have lived during pioneer times but there were many things that would have been difficult including lack of running water, electricity, antibiotics, IVs, and indoor privy.  The pioneers were a different breed of Europeans who created America and came from Europe with nothing. They were so talented and knew how to make so many things from scratch to create a wonderful living space that was functional and ornate.  Here are some photographs from the preserved home that was built around 1850.
