Significance: The Cypress Log Cabin was built for the 1933-34 Century of Progress Exposition as an exhibition house to demonstrate the many uses of cypress. Among the houses from the Home and Industrial Arts group that are at Beverly Shores, the Cypress House is unique in that it was built using traditional materials rather than the experimental materials used elsewhere in the exhibition.
