Remnants of the second-floor interior of a full-log construction cabin circa 1900 located now on the South side of Old M28 West of Foy Road. (Address 13850 Old M28, Covington)

Legend has it that the decayed log cabin above was the place of birth of the father of the current township supervisor. It stood at a different location then. From new construction, only the future can tell what will grow. History is at the crux. We invite all to visit, to research, to see.
