Inscription.  Possibly two of the oldest structures on the site, these log cabins were probably moved from the nearby Tallac Resort to save them from destruction when the Resort was torn down.

In 1915, Dextra and her mother Anita spent time at the lake, living in these small cabins while their larger summer homes were being built. Dextra's was located on this property, and Anita's was on the west side of Fallen Leaf Lake.
 
Erected by USDA Forest Service.
