Safety Harbor in Pinellas County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Safety Harbor Historical Site: Safety Harbor Log Cabin
The log cabin contains a double-sided fireplace. The inside fireplace was used for heating the interior of the home and the outside fireplace was used for cooking. The original kitchen was located outside of the building due to excessive heat buildup and was subsequently enclosed. The date "Nov 20, 1876" is imprinted on the original fireplace.
The first people known to have lived in the cabin are Rev. James Snedecor and his family from 1881 to 1887. Subsequent owners modernized the property throughout
