Cole Cabin


category : Pioneer History
Cole Cabin A more ordinary settler family was that of Samuel and Dorothy Cole. They built this cabin southeast of Hennessey in 1890. It was built of oak logs cut on the farm and hauled to the building site in a wagon drawn by a yoke of oxen.

The cabin originally had a front and back porch and a higher pitched roof with a loft in which the children could sleep. It has been restored with a dirt floor, as was often the case in those days. The dirt was covered with a fine layer of sand to make it more attractive.

Mr. and Mrs. Cole resided in the cabin until their deaths. Later occupants included the Charles E. Nelsons and the Hugh Nelsons who lived there as late as 1952.
