Fort Harrod Part Three
The log houses of Fort Harrod consisted of one room with a dirt floor and were approximately twenty feet by twenty feet. Some cabins had a loft that could be reached by a ladder for sleeping. The first-floor room usually had a rope bed, crude table and chairs for eating, and a fireplace for heat, light and cooking with cooking utensils hanging from it. The fort’s cabins, three blockhouses, and schoolhouse were of foot-thick logs that were squared on the top and bottom to fit snugly when chinked with clay and straw.
