1. The North Cabin Marker
Inscription. The remains of the North Cabin stood near this spot until 1988 when it was dismantled because of structural instability. The foundation of the chimney is the only part of the building visible. The North Cabin was a one-story log dwelling with a corner stair leading to a loft. It also had opposing doors and windows on its east and west facades and exterior weatherboards. The North Cabin was built before 1865, but the exact year of its construction is a mystery. Future archaeological investigation at this site may help to recover the missing elements of the North Cabin's history.
