Our Story

 
Our story begins with some acreage that we purchased in northern Mississippi. It had been clear cut and was left with tree stumps and logs left over from the process.
We took several years and cleared the old logs and preserved the beautiful pine trees that were left behind.
We discovered several old log cabins in the area that were abandoned and falling apart. We took the cabins apart log by log, moved them to the property and reassembled them exactly as they once stood over 150 years ago. The cabins and property are now the home of the YesterYear Lodge in Holly Springs Mississippi.
After spending several years working on our project, we developed a special affinity toward the customs, traditions and products that were used by the settlers of the 19th century.
The ingenuity and resourcefulness of these early settlers was compelling. We are now forging ahead with bringing some of these traditions and all natural products to the general public today.
We began with soap.
We are now preserving the timeless craft of artisan soap making, similar to the way it was done 100 years ago. With our hand crafted soap you’ll enjoy its moisturizing, cleansing and soothing benefits- all natural soap without added chemicals, preservatives or synthetic fragrances.
