See a dwelling used by traders in the early 1800's prior to the settlement of Columbus. It is considered to be the oldest structure in Muscogee County, about 200 years old.
House History and Info
The Log CabinThe cabin was moved from its original location, in the northeastern quadrant of the county, ten miles from its present site.

The dwelling was found in a tangle of undergrowth on the George C. Woodruff, Jr. family farm. In an effort to preserve the cabin, the family made it available to the Historic Columbus Foundation.

The Foundation dismantled and moved the cabin and then reconstructed it at its present location. The project was completed in the spring of 1988.

The late Dr. Joseph Mahan, at that time historic preservation planner of the Lower Chattahoochee Area Planning and Development Commission, and Mr. Fred Fussell with the Columbus Museum guided the project. Lumpkin contractor, Henry Lynch, dismantled and reassembled the cabin.

According to Dr. Mahan and Mr. Fussell: such features as the unusual notching of the logs, the configuration of the building, its original earthen floor, the evidence of ashes in the middle of the room, and its rafters all blackened with smoke, all indicated the log cabin to be the kind of log building used by traders in the early 1800s, prior to the settlement of Columbus.

It was built when the influence of Indian house styles was still present. It has much in common with the original section of the Yuchi Indian House at Westville.
