Inscription.  Virginia's virgin forest provided materials for the settlers' most basic shelter. Centuries ago, first growth trees were felled and the wood hewn to form this single-room log cabin in Piney River, Virginia, 45 minutes south of here. The structure is being reconstructed on this site and will be used to highlight 18th-century trades.
 
Erected by Michie Tavern.
