The house was reassembled, log by log, with tools and techniques from the late 1800s. Using augers, pins, square nails and broad axes, members of the Gallatin Lions Club have preserved an important aspect of our early county history.

The cabin floor plan, with one room downstairs serving as living quarters and one room upstairs for sleeping, was common for settlers in this area. Furnishings are also typical of the pioneer era.
