Notes
Survey number HABS WY-22
Building/structure dates: 1911 initial construction
Significance: This two story log structure, built in 1911, is one of the first homesteaders' cabins in the Jackson Hole country that provided second floor space. It is also believed to be one of the earliest homesteads established on the west side of the Snake River (though Bill Menor's cabin -- WY-24 -- dates from 1892). The cabin's unique design featuring a steep pitched roof with very wide overhanging eaves and gables prevented snow and ice from gathering on the roof and piling up against the walls of the building. When the structure was evaluated in 1942, the only repairs deemed necessary was replacement of the roofing boards that were rotten.
