June 25th Log Cabin Day

It’s only 6 months until Christmas! Not that this fact has anything to do with log cabins but I thought you might like to know. Log Cabins have been a part of our history since our history began. People have to have a place to live and when they first came to the US the main resource to build homes out of was, wood. Instead of cutting the wood into planks, they just used the entire tree! It was logical, the settlers were primarily in the northern states and a home owners was more concerned with keeping warm than enjoying a cool breeze. Today was created by “The Log Cabin Society”, formed by Virginia Handy, and the “Bad Axe Historical Society” on June 25th, 1986.

How to celebrate – Build your own log cabin. Vacation in a log cabin. Buy some Lincoln Logs and make a miniature log cabin of your own.
