Siegel's Servants Quarters

Most of the little houses like this one have long ago been torn down,
 but the Siegel's Servants Quarters has a home in Heritage Village.
 Built around 1900, the building is on the Historic Register.

 Historic Village is the project of the
 Selma-Dallas County Historic Preservation Society. 
Several small, historic structures were moved to this site. 
The village is annually featured on the Selma Pilgrimage,
 and this year will feature demonstrations of early crafts such as 
basket weaving, pottery, quilting and soap making.
 (I hear that there may be a few chickens and goats too!)

What a cute little cottage! I can't wait to see the soap making. I love stuff like that. - And, yes, sheepsheads are good eating! I like my blackened with Mojo Caribbean Seasoning. Yum!

Nice little cottage there. Is that an original color? I like the green.

I think it is always great and important to conserve our heritage. It's history lessons for our future generations. Very nice little building.

Too cute! I'm glad there are places like this that let kids (and adults!) get a hands-on history lesson.

I wonder if the servants' quarters looked that good way back when they were really servants' quarters. :)

EG, Knowing the Siegel family, most likely this house looked even better. :)
