SOD HOUSE

Blackroot sod taken from a ranch in northwest Banner County was utilized to construct this building in 1985.  One of the old plows displayed in the machine shed cut the sod.  Under the supervision of several museum members, the senior high school boys erected the soddy.  Note the "cactus roof".
