Friends of the Log Cabins Holding an Open House and Walk
This Saturday the Friends of the Log Cabins is sponsoring an Open House and Walk for the Log Cabins fundraiser to help raise funds to restore the Fraser Log Cabin located in the Lincoln-era Log Cabin Village located on Quinsippi Island Park. The 4th annual Walk starts at 9 am with a Halloween theme. Walkers are encourage to come dressed in a Halloween costume to participate in a leisurely walk, approximately 1 1/2 miles, from the Shelter House on Quinsippi Island to the large Flagpole and back to the Lincoln-era Log Cabin Village.
Walkers will receive a commemorative T-Shirt and compete for prizes for the most unique costume, plus stay and enjoy an Open House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Log Cabin Village. Most of the village structures will be open for viewing, so visitors and walkers can see how pioneers use to live in the 1800s.
You can go to www.logcabinvillagequincyil.com to download the Registration and Donation forms and get a team together to help raise money the needed funds to restore this very historic 1800's structure and have fun together, walking for a good cause. At the end of the walk, participants can stay and enjoy seeing some of the other structures that date to the 1800's.
A recent failure of the south wall took place on the 1828 Fraser Log Cabin. Therefore, funds are needed to save and restore this historic structure. The Fraser Log Cabin was built as a stagecoach stop, along the original road from Quincy to Ursa. It was also used as a pioneer school house when it was moved.
