Log Cabin

This is a blog to watch the building of our new log cabin for the Town of Minisink Museum. We broke ground on April 21, 2006.

Location: Westtown, New York, United States

The logs for our cabin came from Orange/Ulster BOCES through the efforts of Dan Myers, Dwight Warren and Hap DeGroat. Mike VanderVoort is our volunteer GC. Upon completion the cabin will be used for office, research and storage space. It will add a much needed bathroom. The highlight will be a 1700's exhibit area featuring an 8 foot open hearth.

On April 21, 2006 we broke ground on our log cabin. We have lots of pictures that we will be posting over the next few days to show everyone how things are going.
