A massive rock fireplace with a stacked stone chimney is the focal point of the Cabin and is used for warmth as well as for cooking.
The Cabin was built using the style of the early 19th century Southern Appalachian Frontier log structures. The hand-hewn notched log construction with cement chinking characterizes the one-room, one floor cabin with a loft. Split log benches border all the walls.
