This home has been restored from logs and the floor plan of the second oldest cabin in Mercer County. It is an example of a shelter the earliest settlers used in the 1830's. At the first sign of spring, a German immigrant family would move north from Cincinnati along the planned route for the Miami-Erie Canal. Establishing their homestead farm site, they would girdle trees in the area to kill overhanging foliage, plant an initial crop and construct a basic log shelter to survive the first winter. Many of these "homes" were later used for farm outbuildings or even incorporated as part of the farm house. new Bremen was a topographically unique choice to settle as the southern most point in the continental U.S. where water still flows north, making it a water shed area.
