In 1854-1856 this log home was built in the southern part of the Old Mission Peninsula by early settlers, Mary & Joseph Hessler. The huge logs cut from pine trees were hand hewn and stacked on top of each other to form the walls, while modified dove-tailed joints held the corners snugly together without nails or fasterners. The cabin was moved to this park, repaired, and furnished during 1992-1997 to assist the public in understanding how our pioneer families lived and utilized the untamed land.
