Old Settlers Log Cabin

The Old Settler’s Association organized in February 1926 with the goal of preserving the memory of the pioneers who settled Le Sueur County in the 1850’s.  The group set out to build a log cabin on the fairgrounds in Le Center.  In 1928, they realized their dream.

One log from each township in the county was brought in to build the cabin.  Rough sawn lumber, a wood single roof, and a Kasota stone fireplace complete the design.  The interior is filled with antiques, artifacts, and museum pieces for the public to learn early county history.  Of special note is a collection of original photographs featuring pioneer families.  In 1971, a building was constructed around the little cabin to protect it from the elements.  Visitors can examine the cabin from all sides and view the displays set up around its exterior in a comfortable setting.
