Walkaround of Early 19th Century Log Cabin

In previous posts, I went inside this farm house that is just up the valley from my own place. This morning I went back to make a video that shows the old cabin in relation to its location. I ran into two old hunters who knew much history obout the house and the family who lived there. Turns out that the structure is much older than I had originally thought. The plank siding on the exterior actually covers up the original hand hewed logs, dating the cabin more toward the Revolutionary War than the Civil War. The last occupants raised ten kids in the house, and four previous generations had called the place home. The original farm encompassed over 600 acres. Fascinating!
