Granny’s Cabin

This unique log cabin has only three logs per wall and a puncheon floor. The cabin was moved to the site from Hawkins County, and Virginia Caldwell named it the Granny Cabin.  It is furnished to show a rugged dwelling of early settlers. The fireplace is equipped with a large crane that allowed the tending of food that was cooking over the fire.  The first floor also includes a rough rope bed that is joined to the walls.  As with most cabins of this era, a loft was accessible by wooden stairs which allowed the settlers to sleep above the cabin.
