Log Cabin

Travel back into Wisconsin history with the Brand Log Cabin.

Cook on the open hearth, write with quill pens, play games, churn butter, harvest vegetables, try a two-man saw, and more. Our authentic 1838 log cabin was recovered from Walworth County with help from The Nature Conservancy and made possible by Nathan Brand and Regina Millner. Our Log Cabin is one of the oldest known log cabins in Wisconsin!

Beginning April 1, the Log Cabin will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. April 10 through 14, the cabin will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
