1. Orrin L. Winters Cabin Marker
Inscription.  

Originally a two-room cabin, built about 1853 near the Lavaca River (2 miles northeast) by Orrin L. Winters (1811-1902), a native of Tennessee. He lived in the structure until 1873. About 1902, the oak log cabin was torn down by Adam Schutz, and used to construct a barn and a blacksmith shop. The blacksmith shop later burned, and in 1973, the barn was dismantled, moved here, and restored as a cabin, to represent the pioneer heritage of Lavaca County.
