Oneota Park

-A A +A
c. 1937. North side of US 18, at the eastern city limits

Within the park is a recreation building in the form of a log cabin some fifty feet long. The logs of the walls are beautifully matched, as if someone had purchased a set of John Lloyd Wright's Lincoln Logs and had magically transformed the toy into a real building.
