Description
Log cabin with round log construction. Bottom S.W. log has been replaced by stonework and concrete. One stone step leads to the only door which faces N.W. Door constructed from horizontal 1 x 4 wooden slats has a metal handle and pad lock. Chinking is mostly of oakum faced with concrete. The concrete is very sandy and is deteriorating. Two windows, one is on S.E. side (88.3 x 88.9), has white casements, one pane is broken. The other window, on N.E. side (91.4 x 45.75 cm.) has green painted sills and white casements. Very mossy roof with wooden shingles over wooden slats. Tar paper lies between shingles and roof. Thin metal sheets take the place of shingles for about the width of 2 feet the length of the N.W. side. Electrical socket on S.E. exterior probably dates from the 1930's. Interior logs are white-washed. Gables are shingled . Ridge pole and one horizontal supporting beam of two extends about a meter from the edge of roof on S.E. side.Cabin originally belonged to Bill Peyto and was probably used as storage shed for saddles, packboxes etc. In 1935 it was used by Peter and Catharine Whyte as a temporary residence for Indian models they were painting, the David Bearspaw family were among the inhabitants. Cabin has been moved twice, first in 1932 was moved slightly N.E. and again in 1968.
