The cedar log cabin changed ownership many times and the last land owner was Frank Stewart of the Martha Community.
The original structure with two pens and a dog trot with stone chimneys at each end was moved to Fiddlers Grove in 1997. Today, it contains a museum in each pen. The left museum houses the personal items of James E. Ward. His personal items and artifacts used for curing ham and also wine barrels and items from his other hobby of wine making. The right museum is filled with Civil War artifacts and other memorabilia of early life in Wilson County.
The cabin was donated by the Stewart Family and Pam Cooper in 1997
