Crockett in Houston County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Strode-Pritchett Log Cabin
This log cabin was constructed on the Jeremiah Strode league (12 mi. E). It is believed to have been built in the 1850s by B.R. Wallace (1800-73), Strode's son-in law and a Texas legislator, or by Wallace's cousin W. W. Wallace (b. 1821). Later additions covered the cabin and by 1950, when the land was sold to W. S. and Fannie Pritchett, no traces were visible. Used for hay storage until 1973 when it was exposed, the cabin was given to the Houston County Historical Commission, who had it moved here and restored as part of the American Bicentennial and annual County birthday activities.
Spirit of 76. W.S. and Fannie Pritchett.
Erected 1982 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 7045.)
