Forness Log Cabin

This Forness Log Cabin at Bonanzaville is an authentic reproduction of the single-level log cabins of early pioneer days. It was built by Palmer Forness right on the grounds. In this region, log cabins were commonly built near rivers when there was an abundance of trees. A main feature in this cabin is the cast iron stove located in the center of the room, its main use was for heating. Because of the cabin's small size, pioneers would not have to wait long for heat in the middle of winter. If you were to light the stove when you entered the cabin, it would almost unbearably hot by the time you finished looking around.
