Lincoln City Log Cabin The Lincoln Boyhood Living Memorial in southern Indiana is a re-created pioneer homestead with a cabin, outbuildings, split rail fences, farm animals, vegetable and herb gardens and field crops. Rangers in period clothing perform a variety of activities typical of the 1820 era.
Log Cabin Fulton County's Living History Village is
called Loyal, Indiana, for a little village that used to exist a few
miles west of the museum. Originally named Germany, Indiana, the
people changed the name to Loyal in 1918 when the U.S. was at war
with Germany. The village has many buildings including a pioneer
woman's log cabin and a round barn.
City Cabin The Gene Stratton-Porter Cabin, built
using white cedar logs and redwood shingles, is near the Michigan
border. This was the home of the famous author of the Limberlost
books. Guided tours of the Porters' log cabin are available. There is
some really cool stuff inside the cabin. The bookshelves are filled
with books from Gene's personal library, and the antique McCray
icebox refrigerator has just been packed with a new block of "ice",
giving the cabin the same look and feel it would have had when the
Porters lived there.
Mauckport Cabin The Squire Boone Cavern less than forty miles from Louisville, Kentucky features a historic village with a log cabin gristmill built by Squire Boone in the early 1800's. The mill has been restored and is again grinding grain just as it did nearly two centuries ago. You can watch as the 18 foot wheel, powered by water flowing from the caverns, turns the 1,000 pound grinding stones. You can even buy some of the freshly ground cornmeal!
County Cabin Skinner Farm Village near Perrysville is

artifacts which represent over 150 years of local Indiana history. A
family runs it as a working farm and they sound like quite a bunch!
