Jim Wilson and his adopted sons lived in this one-room, gable-roofed sandstone cabin, one of the oldest buildings remaining on the ranch. The early cabins constructed here are clustered on the northwestern part of the ranch, where large trees provide shade. A small wooden shed projects from the southeast end of the facade in line with a small shed-roofed porch covering the remainder of the facade. The thick stone walls of the cabin keep the interior cool even during the hottest time of day.
