1. Famous One-Log House Marker
Inscription.  Crafted in 1946 from a 2100 year old redwood, this section of the tree weighed 42 tons and took 8 months of labor to hollow out a room 7' high and 32' long. With wheels attached, it toured the United States in its early years, then settled in redwood country, arriving here in 1999. Just like home: the inside is furnished with living, dining and bedroom areas.
