Sod House In Pictures

A cozy sod house interior
A chamber pot. The children were slightly horrified.
Not much to look at from the outside. I found the inside to be sweet smelling like grass. Early Pella settlers lived in houses like this in 1847. It took about a week to build a sod house. This sod house can be viewed at the Pella Historical Village.
