  • This photograph depicts men taking lunch on the side porch of the Farm House at the John C. Campbell Folk School, after working on the Log House Museum all morning. Members of the Brasstown, N.C. community pledged time and labor to help with construction on the Folk School. The Farm House was originally used for school housing and administration. The photograph was taken by Daisy Dame, probably in the mid-1920s. Daisy Dame was the sister of school founder Olive Dame Campbell and took numerous photographs documenting the early years at the Folk School.
