This log cabin in Kentucky is historic enough to actually be included in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. Built in the 1780s, this 4,112 sq. ft. cabin has withstood the test of time through various renovations and maintenance work.
Another interesting thing about this home is the way it was built. It is not the typical log houses of the old days. It is in the style of a double-pen, dogtrot log house and is actually made of cherry logs than the more common poplar logs. The cabin boasts of five fireplaces and original wooden floors. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is also a separate carriage house on the property equipped with a kitchenette and bathroom.
This historical log cabin is for sale for $795,000.
It is larger and more substantial than most extant log houses in Jefferson County, and was clearly intended to be a permanent dwelling rather than a “claim” cabin or temporary shelter.
