Pioneer Log Cabin Reopening – North Lanark
July 23 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Celebrate the re-opening of our 1840s Restored Pioneer Log Cabin at North Lanark Regional Museum at 647 River Road, Appleton, this Saturday, July 23rd. The museum and cabin will be open from 11 a.m – 3 p.m., with speakers, tours, fiddlers, a log cabin craft for kids, a display by Pat Wolfe Log Building School, a twine cutting and cake 12:30 to 2 pm.”
This Cabin is symbolic of the rich pioneer history and the early European settlers who came to what is now Mississippi Mills.
This Log Cabin is an excellent architectural example of a typical cottage-style settler’s home found across the Ottawa Valley in the early 19th century.
Over the years, it fell into various stages of disrepair until it was forced to close three years ago. Through the determination, hard work and generosity of volunteers and donors, the Log Cabin and its contents are now preserved and ready for the Official Re-Opening.
Our pioneer roots run deep in the Ottawa Valley. Thanks to organizations like the North Lanark Historical Society, remarkable examples of our history are preserved and made accessible to the contemporary public.
