In 1900, subsistence farming was a way of life in Tennessee. The Boone/Smith homestead, (Erin, TN) produced enough food to feed their family of 15 children. They also raised a 5-acre “Cash Crop” of dark-fired tobacco to pay for goods that could not be cultivated on the farm. The “Log Cabin” quilts address three primary aspects of life on the homestead: 1) Family Relationships, 2) Farm Habitat and Holdings, 3) The Raising of Tobacco.
