This log cabin was originally located northeast of Creston in Lincoln township. The cabin was built by the Emhoff family sometime after the land was purchased in 1855. The family started adding rooms as their 9 children were being born. This cabin became the dining room of a much larger home. After the cabin was donated to the Union Co. Historical Society in the 70's, the northeast side, fireplace and roof were added. You can easily see the difference between the NE and NW walls.
