Side 1
Double-pen split log cabin built in 1840's by early settlers who fled disease carrying mosquitoes along Claybank Creek, the first permanent location in this area. This house was the gathering place for many families. The logs tell of many happy occasions and the sad events endured by the people as they weathered the storms of their lives. The settlers have gone on to eternity but the structure still stands as a legacy to remind future generations of a time gone by.
Restored in 2005-2006
