Inscription. The Tannehill brothers built this cabin for a residence in 1864 and lived here about a year before selling their mining interest to a New York company in 1866. The cabin subsequently went through a number of owners, including the firm of Nathan & Harrison, one of the area's first mercantile establishments in the late 1860's.

Fires, floods and the ravages of time have spared the structure and local residents take a justifiable pride in the fact that they have been able to save it.
