This sod house is part of the Museum of the Fur Trade, in Chadron, Nebraska, built on the site of a trading post for the American Fur Company that was established in 1837. The post was in ruins by the mid-1880s, and it was reconstructed in 1956 on its original foundation stones.

    Cool in summer, warm in winter? Plus good camouflage from hostile folks, no doubt.
