This spring I had the pleasure of being called back to the William Harris Homestead to take more photographs. It was a treat for me because I was able to photograph the log house in a different season. (You can view Autumn at the William Harris Homestead here.)

This is my favorite photograph of the log house. I love the early spring foliage on those tall, majestic trees.

I was hired to do three jobs this time. I took photos of the log house and outbuildings, including their beautiful new pavilion. I photographed another field trip, and I also got to take some staff photographs. The people who work at the homestead are talented, knowledgeable and warm-hearted, and they give the kids on the school tours a real treat. I’m going to include some photos from all those sessions in this one post, so I hope you enjoy them.

The staff at the homestead are very happy to have this new pavilion which is used for various events and rentals. It has nice bathroom facilities for guests too.

Field trip. Students get a tour of the log house and learn about the early Harris family and how they lived in the 19th century.

Inside the log house

A Civil War reenactor teaches kids what daily life was like for a soldier in the Civil War. Here one of the students is inspecting a soldier’s boot.

Students also receive a blacksmith demonstration (pictured above), a hay ride, and view artifacts that have been excavated at the homestead.

Have you ever been to the William Harris Homestead? If you live in Georgia and haven’t been yet, I highly recommend you stop by!
