Hart Square is a recreated log cabin village in Catawba County, North Carolina. This village is the project of Dr. Bob Hart, a physician in nearby Hickory, and his wife Becky. They have taken old structures from around western North Carolina and moved or reconstructed them on a parcel of land, recreating an old village, complete with furnishings and appropriate machinery. It is the largest collection of historic log buildings in the United States. Each year, on the last weekend of October, this site is open to the public as a fundraiser for the Catawba County Historical Association ( www.catawbahistory.org/
). I had the good fortune to work with Dr. Hart at his clinic and was able to see this incredible project.
