Preserving American History
The log cabin is a uniquely American building type. It was first used for simple protection from the elements during years of Westward expansion. As the nation expanded the style grew into multi-room homes, eventually incorporating indoor plumbing and even electric lighting. The major benefit of the log home was that the natural wood resource was plentiful. It was also usually available from the the surrounding area of construction. Many of these homes still exist and many of those are noted as historic structures by the Secretary of the Interior.
