1. What are your impressions of the landscape?

2. How do the photo and floor plan compare to your image of the homestead based on descriptions in the readings?

3. Why was Hornbek's house considered unusual for the time period and location?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain high resolution versions of the photo and of the drawing, but be aware that the entire files will take about as much as a minute to load with a 28.8K modem.
