The History of the Log Cabin Heritage Park
Log Cabin Heritage Park is an open-air architectural museum of log houses which was established to preserve the folk architecture of the Kickapoo Valley. The park is located next to the Crawford County Fairgrounds in Gays Mills. The park includes six log structures along a spring fed creek, two shelters, grills, restrooms, volleyball court, horse-shoe facilities, ball diamond, swimming pool and children's playground.
The Log Cabin Heritage Society was formed in 1996 as a sub-chapter of the Crawford County Heritage Society to repair and maintain the Log Cabin Heritage Park. The Crawford County Historical Society planned and established the Log Cabin Park in Gays Mills about 26 years ago. The Village of Gays Mills granted use of the land on the site of an old saw mill.
