In 1993, the historical society was offered a Log Cabin if they would remove it from Larry Gitter's farm and bring it to the village.
The cabin was dismantled and transported to the village, then rebuilt on the edge of the woods to give the impression of how it must have looked in its youth. It was originally built around 1850-51.
The McLaughlin family, who built the cabin, came to the U.S. from Ireland in about 1832, settling first in Canada. Around 1850 the family moved to the Lebanon Township in Waupaca County.
