Cabin

The first log cabins built in North America were in the Swedish colony of Nya Sverige (New Sweden) in the Delaware River and Brandywine River valleys in 1638.

Abraham Lincoln was born in a one roomed log cabin, 16ft long & 18ft wide.

A house at 184 38th Street in Pittsburgh is the oldest known log house that continued to be used a residence in any major American city. It dates to the 1820s.
