Baker Cabin

Posted on: October 11th, 2012 by Annie Von Domitz in Oregon Trail Interpretive Sites |

From Eagle Creek, travel west on Highway 224 to the Springwater-Bakers Ferry Road, and then to the junction of Hattan Road. After living out of the family’s wagon for a number of years, Mrs. Baker’s sympathetic neighbors built this cabin for her in 1856. Mrs. Baker’s husband, a mason, quarried basalt from a nearby pit and was too busy to build a cabin for his family. The Baker Cabin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only cantilevered log house inOregon. This site also includes a historic pioneer church.
