Log Cabin Village

. Description: The Log Cabin Village consists of seven authentic log homes dating from the mid to late 1800s, six of which were moved and restored at the Village site in the 1950s, and the last one in 1974. Each is decorated with museum quality antiques and artifacts, some of which belonged to the families that once lived in the homes. Period dressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin, telling the history of the home and answering questions. Text Courtesy of Log Cabin Village
