June 30: Log Cabin Day

Proenneke Cabin, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska

In 1986, the Bad Axe Historical Society (in Michigan) created Log Cabin Day to encourage people to enjoy and preserve old log cabins.

The holiday is intended to celebrate traditional, small, rustic log cabins, not the large, fancy log houses you can sometimes find today.

You can celebrate log cabins today by staying in one, visiting a museum log cabin, or perhaps playing with a set of Lincoln Logs. Or, if you’re me, you can agree that log cabins are really neat, but be grateful for your own house (whatever type it is) . . . and indoor plumbing.

“By wisdom a house is built,
and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.”

Proverbs 24:3-4
