If you wonder if your cabin is worth saving, take a look at what was done with the Banner Cabin in Sanilac Michigan. This cabin was quickly built as a replacement home for the Henry Patten family, who lost their entire homestead in a tragic fire. Logs that survived the fire were used to build the new cabin and you can still see some of the charred wood. If you click the link below, you can see the pictures of how far gone this cabin was before they brought it to the museum. (The cabin pics are near the end of the slide show.)

The cabin is at the Sanilac County Museum. This Historic Village has eight restored buildings on 10 acres, including a country doctor’s 20-room Victorian mansion, general store, the 157-year-old Huckins One-room Schoolhouse, the 1883 Banner Pioneer Log Cabin, and what is probably the state’s last remaining historic Barn Theater. You can also see some extensive Victorian gardens, a marine shipwreck room, a separate dairy industry museum, plus old-time carriages, military and native American exhibits. If you time your visit right, you can see a performance in the theater also.
