Log Cabin on site at the Enoch Wright House in Venetia. The 18th century log house was donated to the society and moved from its original site southwest of Claysville, West Finely Twp, Washington County to the grounds in 2003. It measures 16.5' X 20' comprising one room on the ground floor and a loft above. The cabin is used as an interpetation of a pioneer homestead on the westward frontier as experienced by original settlers like Joshua Wright and his son Enoch Wright. The cabin will be open to visit during ‘Soup and Stroll’ on December 12.
