                        Pictured above is a " wood hick " house. Woodhicks were men that lived in the woods cutting timber and peeling bark. The only time they came into town was to get their paychecks which they spend all at once and never returned to their houses with a penny to their names. They were known as men who worked hard and played harder. As shown by this picture their houses weren't luxurious but they worked for the men well enough.
