Leland Log Cabin and McIntosh Log Cabin

-A A +A
1856, 1857. Potter's Park, corner of Pine and Morse streets

The one-and-a-half-story McIntosh log cabin was moved from its original site in nearby Galland's Grove to Potter's Park in 1971. The smaller, single-story Leland cabin was moved there a few years later. Both cabins have walls of split logs; the gable ends of the McIntosh cabin are shingled.
