The Freels Bend Cabin was one of the earliest cabins built in Anderson County. Construction on the cabin was begun in 1810 by Edward Freels. The cabin was a double-pen, hewn-log structure. Techniques in its construction are representative of those used in the area in the early 19th century. It is Oak Ridge's only remaining residence that was built in that century.
