Notes
Survey number HABS CO-163
Building/structure dates: 1885 initial construction
Significance: A rarity among surviving log cabins at St. Elmo, this cabin illustrates the "Anglo-Western" type first used in the Plains Settlement and later brought to Rocky Mountain mining camps. Unlike other St. Elmo log cabins of the 1880's with high-pitched gable roofs and plank gables, the Ennis Cabin is totally constructed of logs below the eaves and has a low-pitch roof. Its construction suggests the absence of a saw mill, but mills appeared in 1880, and tax assessment records show no improvements on the site before 1885.
