Log Cabin, 318 River Street
Probably built in the 1930’s this is of original log construction. Log Cabins came to the United States with the Swedes in the middle colonies. They squared the sides and corners as cabins moved west the squares were omitted and joints were mud and moss filled. This created the American style. The revival of this style in the late 1800’s was and extension of the overlapping end logs, to create a romanticized look which did not exist in earlier years.
