Noah Blake Cabin interior, c. 1974

An early photograph of the interior of the original Noah Blake cabin on the grounds of the Eric Sloane Museum. We rebuilt that cabin after it was determined to be structurally unsound by the state of Connecticut. We hewed (pun intended) to Eric’s vision of the cabin as he illustrated it in his 1962 classic Diary of an Early American Boy: Noah Blake 1805.
