Pioneer Cabin

The Pioneer Log Cabin, built originally ca. 1865 in Section 2 of Liberty Township, was donated to the Lucas County Historical Society in 1995 by the Schaefer family after it was detected as part of an outbuilding on a farm.

An Amish crew dismantled the cabin and it was moved in pieces to the museum grounds in Chariton where it remained in storage until 2001 when it was reassembled, using the original logs but new roofing, rafter and beam materials. Grants and volunteer labor were instrumental in reconstruction of the cabin.
