Tiny House in a Landscape

Tiny House in a Landscape

cabin in a landscape

On our way back from Michigan last summer we happened upon this old scene from the wild west. It looks like someone had a dream to develop a small tourist site with an old time western frontier town. Just off from this cabin is a large hand painted sign that reads “A Dream Died Here.”

This is in the small town of Goehner, Nebraska. If you’re passing through, Chez Bubba Cafe in the small “downtown” area is a great place for some BBQ.

  1. “A Dream Died Here.” Man that is sad ..just remember “Try and try and maybe cry but never never let your dreams die “…..I just made that up …I thought it was fitting….Glenn Wright.

  2. That’s a cool cabin! I wouldn’t mind living there, at least for a short period.

    As with all dreams, they come and they go. Hopefully they become a reality before moving to the next. For the dreams that fail, they make us stronger, test our faith, and prepare us to rise again, wiser and more passionate than ever.

  3. Sad. I always think when I see a deserted home that someone had to leave home..and if I see a deserted home in a beautiful place it’s even more sad.

  4. I remember seeing a few of these along the Oregon Trail when we took our kids on a 6-week historical tour of the US back in ’94. They were used when pioneers needed a ‘wintering over’ structure, or as temporary housing while the ‘main’ house was being built.

    This would make a great guest house!
