Believed to be the oldest dwelling in Eureka, this log cabin has been moved and altered a number of times. It contrasts markedly with the town's brick houses, which replaced log cabins and tents as Eureka became more settled. The cabin's massive logs, rarely seen in Nevada, came from old-growth limber pines cut and transported from high elevations around Eureka.
