Dolly Parton's childhood is said to have been quite a bit different from her life today, and yet there are parts of us that would love to return to that period of time in the 1940s and 50s. In many ways those were simpler times, but obviously, they were also harder times.
What we really grope for might be the better morals, or perhaps a time when less publicity was granted to the offended and the offensive. Maybe we're looking for a time when the media was more credible or when people weren't afraid of hard labor.
All of that comes in a display of Dolly Parton's childhood house at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The too-small log cabin in the park is a re-creation of the real one which still stands in its original location. The contents here are reported to be mostly original "family treasures". Imagine the bustle of this tiny building with Dolly and her 10 brothers and sisters running about.
Still want to go back to a "simpler" time?
