Log Cabin Court House Repair Project
We request your support to help repair the Log Cabin Court House in Cowan's Railroad Park.
The cabin we see today was constructed in 1975 for our nation's Bi-Centennial Celebration. The log were salvaged from an historic log cabin that originally stood in the Williams Cove area.
The log cabin represents the original home of Major William Russell, who served as the first Judge Magistrate of Franklin County. Court sessions and court musters were held on Russell home place from 1807 until 1814 when the county seat was formally developed in Winchester.
After 40-plus years of exposure to the elements the log cabin needs repair work. We welcome any and all contributions to this project.
