Log Cabin = = Early 1800s
Log Cabin!!. Trustee meeting notes 1/27/18Austin reported that framing of windows and doors will commence in May. Chinking will begin after the Spring Show. He reported that Bryan Thompson and Pat Dominie had investigated the original owners and builders of the Cabin. David Madill arrived from Ireland via Montreal and eventually purchased the land in 1837. A Federal Agricultural Census in 1850 shows that Madill had become a successful farmer. In discussions of several items of evidence, Thompson and Austin feel it likely that construction of the Cabin began soon after the land had been acquired, perhaps in 1838. Dominie will continue work on the Madill genealogy.
