A little house is content with her place on a small hill, surrounded by picturesque countryside. Far in the distance, the little house can see the lights of a city, and contemplates what it would be like to live there. One by one, changes come to the rural landscape. A paved road replaces the old dirt path, apartments spring up, light posts and trolley cars appear, and eventually, the little house finds herself surrounded by the bustling city she once wondered at from afar. Its earnest desires to live once again in the peaceful countryside and house a happy family come to fruition when a great-great-granddaughter of the original owner helps restore the little house to her former home.
