Log House Living History

The 1849 Log House on the Sweeney Homestead property is much like the one the Swinney family lived in before their stately brick house was built. It was laboriously moved, piece by piece, from Huntington County and is used for Settler activities and Living History presentations of home life in the 1850s.

The Log House will be open to "walk through" during the West Central Neighborhood Association Historic Home Tour on September 9 & 10 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
