Hyde Log Cabin

 

Built circa 1783

 

This pioneer log cabin was one of the first buildings constructed in this area.  Built from cedar logs by Jedediah Hyde, Jr., an 

engineer and veteran of the Revolutionary War, it was the home of the Hyde family for over 150 years. The cabin has one large 

room, heated by a stone fireplace, and a loft above.  Many believe this is the oldest log cabin in the United States.  The cabin was 

moved two miles to this location in 1946 by the Vermont Historical Society and restored in 1956 and in 1985.  The Grand Isle 

Historical Society owns the collection in the building.
