Hart Square

Recently a friend brought me an interesting photograph.  It was of a piece of tatting, framed and hanging in a cabin in Catawba County, NC.  The interesting thing about all this is that it is in a place called Hart Square.  Established by Dr. Robert Hart, this important historical site is part of the Catawba County Historical Association and is the largest accumulation of original historic log structures in the United States.  These cabins cover the time period from the Revolutionary War through the 1870’s.    The remarkable thing is that tatting is included.  This is the piece:

Judging by the size of the logs, this doily is about 18 inches across, maybe more.  It consists of only rings, which means it is a single-shuttle piece.  Hart Square is open to the public only on the 4th weekend in October and tickets must be purchased in advance.  They go very fast, so diligence and the ability to be online the minute tickets become available to purchase them.    For more information, see the Hart Square website:   http://www.catawbahistory.org/hart_square.php     There is also a link to an article in Our State magazine about the site.

I’d LOVE to go!  Any takers?
