Savage River Cabin

-A A +A

The first cabin completed along the road was the Savage River Cabin, and from there the cabins were spaced every 10–15 miles. Like most of the cabins, this one is 12 feet by 14 feet, of logs hewn flat on three sides, square notched at the corners. As with all of the patrol cabins, the gable roof extends in the front to cover a porch.
