Mad River Road Log Cabin

This circa 1830 log cabin can be found at Highland House in Hillsboro, Ohio. It was built by a fellow named George Robison along Mad River Road and donated by the Curtis Wilson family in 1980.

The cabin has stood at this site since 1990 and can be seen from the street. Highland House is a magnificent hometown museum which I wrote about a few times last month.

My favorite exhibit there is about the Hillsboro Marching Mothers who used peaceful demonstrations to end segregation in their elementary schools. Read it here. They also have a fantastic tribute to the old Colony Theater and a host of other items.

If you go, be sure to allow plenty of time to enjoy the outdoor exhibits as well as those outside.
