This dogtrot-style cabin was reconstructed in 1981 on the Historical Society grounds. Typical dogtrot cabins have two log cabins connected by a breezeway under one continuous roof. This cabin is slightly altered because the roof is at two levels. The majority of the logs (about 70%) came from a two-story cabin in Spraggs, PA and Russell Headlee was mainly responsible for the reconstruction of the cabin here.
