1. Piney River Cabin ca. 1790 Marker
Inscription.  Virginia's virgin forest provided materials for the settlers' most basic shelter. Centuries ago, first growth trees were felled and hewn to form the single room log cabin in Piney River, Virginia, 45 minutes south from here. This 18th century chestnut log house features "V notches" and hand-forged nails. These massive logs were dismantled and reassembled on this site in 2009.
 
Erected by Michie Tavern.
