Lower Shinglemill Cabin

Address: southwest of Buffalo Creek, Pike National Forest

The site is a ca. 1880-1920 historic cabin constructed with raw, saddle-notched logs of local origin. It is situated in a side-hill, leveled excavation in a gully above the drainage which measures 11 feet by 12 feet by three feet deep. This dirt material from the excavation was shared with saddle-notched loop and utilized as the lower part of the walls of the structure. The entrance door appears to be situated in the south wall. An old wagon road is located approximately 30 meters east of the cabin.
