Ott Family Cabin

Ott cabin

Ott Family Log Cabin:

Louie and Emma Ott raised their 18

 children with a spirit of self-reliance and

 personal responsibility. Emma did not live

 to see her sixties. What little time

 Louie and Emma had exclusive of direct

 child rearing was spent on

 meeting the daily needs for food, clothing

 and shelter. Here household

 and outdoor skills are demonstrated. Rug

  making, weaving, cooking, gardening, butter

  and soap making, Axemanship, blacksmithing,

 shooting, sawing, carpentry, and cider making.

The cabin was dismantled on Memorial Day 2000,

and moved from section 11 in nearby Hatton Township.
