Heckler Plains Farmstead, Lower Salford, Pennsylvania
Philadelphia
Heckler Plains Farmstead, Lower Salford, Pennsylvania is home to a 36 acre park with a playground, ball fields, a bike path, a nature trail and a pavilion. The farmstead dates from the early 1700s and the barn was built in the 1760s. According to the heckler Plains Folklife Society, the barn is one of the few remaining examples of a Rhine Valley bottom barn — a barn where the threshing floor is on the lower level between the animal stables instead of the first floor, as in bank barns. The land was referred to as a “plain” because except for about 40 acres, where the farmhouse was constructed, consisted of heavy timber. The land remained in the Heckler family until 1929. In 1974 the land was purchased by the Lower Salford Township. The farm is on the Pennsylvania Inventory of Historic Places. There is a herb and vegetable garden on the site also.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
