Log Cabins in Iowa’s history
Iowa has a rich history in which log cabins played an important part. The Abbie Gardner Sharp Cabin is one of the sites of the 1857 “Spirit Lake Massacre” and later as one of Iowa’s first tourist attraction, the Gardner Cabin survives as a reminder of one of Iowa’s tragic frontier events. The Marshall County log cabin was believed to have been built in 1856. Also see First Log Cabin at Fort Des Moines.
The Iowa state motto is “Our Liberties We Prize and Our Rights We Will Maintain”.
