Significance: The Whitcomb Cabin is historically significant as the last pioneer log home remaining in the Conboy Lake (Camas Prairie) area and one of the last in Klickitat County. Architecturally, it exemplifies careful log building methods common to European builders and was carefully finished for permanent occupancy. The cabin symbolizes the history of settlement and agricultural development of the Camas Prairie area. It has the potential to convey significant information about early living conditions, pioneer technology, and rural housekeeping in this area in the later 19th and early 20th centuries.
