    The pioneers lived in small family farms and settlements with no electricity, running water, flush toilets or motor vehicles. The tasks of everyday life were accomplished by human ingenuity and hard work. During the first years of settlement they lived in small cabins or lean-tos built from hand-hewn logs that were chinked with mud, later (in the 1700's and early 1800's) large farms called plantations were created. Plantations usually had a single large house and several smaller buildings. For the average settler, food was gathered from the forest or grown in small tracts of farmland.

    Early American home life was hard. Daily work preoccupied both adults and children in order for them to sustain their existence. When they had free time, adults and children alike entertained one another with storytelling, music, dancing, and games such as marbles, dice, and horseshoes. These small diversions helped preserve the cultural identity of individual groups of people, and helped establish the beginnings of American culture.
