Before we tell you where this little log cabin is located, guess!......... If you know the answer, you have probably been living in Greensboro for a while. If you know the history of this structure, you are a local!

The answer: In the 1930's, the log cabin was built with federal monies on the campus of the University of North Carolina Greensboro. It was used for recreational offices and was located near the athletic fields on Walker Avenue. Later, it became the headquarters of the chief of campus police. In the early 1990's, the cabin was moved 1/2 mile west on Walker Avenue to make room for UNCG's new recreation center. Today, the log house is a private residence.

Allen W. Trelease, a UNCG professor emeritus in History, mentions the log cabin in his comprehensive, 680 page history of the university. Check out his book, Making North Carolina Literate.
