Laughead Cabin

Former site of a log cabin built in 1803 by David Laughead, a Revolutionary War soldier, great-grandfather of William B. Laughead, creator of Paul Bunyan stories. Laughead came to Ohio with an expedition led by Gen. George Rogers Clark. The 1 ½ story cabin featured a winding, narrow ladder stairway to the second floor and “steeple notching” or upward cuts where the logs meet at the corners. Donated by the Willard Quillen Family, the log cabin was moved from its original site and donated in July 1987 to the Kettering-Moraine Museum.
