Sons of Utah Pioneers donate 140-year-old log cabin to Lehi City
LEHI — The Lehi City Council has voted to accept the donation of a 140-plus-year-old log cabin from the Sons of the Utah Pioneers local chapter.
The organization acquired the cabin from Marilyn and Eric Larson, and then donated it to Lehi for care and maintenance.
Provo's Daily Herald reports the 15.5-foot by 18.5-foot structure will be moved and displayed as a piece of pioneer history at the Lehi Hutchings Museum.
Francis and Jacobine Hunger built the cabin around 1869 after reaching Utah with a handcart company.
Marilyn Larson says the cabin has been used as summer shelter for cows in recent years, and she remembers her father using it as shelter for sheep and horses.
