Forgotten Times Cabins

Biography

Photo of Forgotten Times Cabins

In the lush hills of Perry County in rural southern Indiana just over the Kentucky border rests a pair of serene log cabins, hand-hewn in the time-honored tradition of the mid-19th century. Settled along the magnificent and wild Ohio River, these cabins are a peaceful reminder of a forgotten time, a time antebellum before the Civil War, a time characterized by a simpler way of life, and when pioneers set out for new lands and prospectors struck out for fortune.

Originally constructed in the 1850s, the cabins were disassembled in 1989 and moved to where they proudly stand today, on a bluff overlooking Oil Creek. The cabins are decorated with early American charm and loving care. The scenery is teeming with wildlife, as well as perennial flowers, and it’s not altogether unusual to spot graceful blue herons, gentle deer, industrious beavers, wild turkeys, and a variety of migrating ducks. And being that you’re in the midst of 60,000 acres of Hoosier National Forest, you’ll be able to hike along seemingly endless trails in one of the hilliest and most forested counties in the entire state.
