This picture is from a postcard taken in the 1950s at Salem
It is a replica of one of the original pioneer homes built about
1830 in the village of New Salem. The village was reconstructed
several years ago. It is located on the original site a few miles
to the north and west of Springfield, Illinois.
The home shown is quite similar, judging from the description,
to that of Benjamin(6) family's home in Bonpas township, Richland
built near the same date.
