Larsen Cabin

LarsenCabin 300pxIMG 0416The Larsen Cabin is said to have been built by Johann Jern in 1893. It was located on the West Badger Road. The Cabin's architecture, precise cuts of the cedar with large square nails on each corner, can be traced back to early Scandinavian and English techniques also used in the Hudson Bay area. In 1909 it was purchased by Chris Larsen. In 2007 the owners contacted some of the stakeholders of Pioneer Park and donated the Cabin. The two room cabin has a unique plank ceiling and is displayed as a trapper cabin.
