1. The Old Log Cabin Marker
Inscription. Log cabins used to be common in Moab. I am the oldest one left. I was built, most likely, by the first bishop of Moab, Randolph Stewart, for his third plural wife, Marietta, about 1881. The Stanley's, a family of four lived here in 1908 after they moved from the Wolfe Ranch in Arches. A couple of bachelors, Howard Balsley uranium mining pioneer, and Bish Taylor, local newspaper editor, lived here in 1912. I am listed on the National Registor of Historic Places as an Historic Landmark.
