Stone's Trace PROJECTS continue "To give the past a future".
Welcome to Stone's Trace Historical Society's "Gramling Cabin" relocation and reconstruction project.
Originally built in 1850, it is a 20 ft x 25 ft log house which was donated to us by the Gramling family of DeKalb County, Indiana. We have now moved the house parts 45 miles from its original location to it's new permanent home on the Stone's Trace property at 5111 Lincolnway South, Ligonier, IN, where it will be reconstructed with the same care and attention that we have given to the many structures, projects and maintenance on the Stone's Trace property.
In April 2012, the logs were marked in preparation for the move in May of 2012. The foundation has been laid and soon reconstruction of the building will begin. Watch our progress!
We are counting on the generous support of our friends who understand the value of preserving these early Indiana and American historical structures. Your donations will make this effort possible.
Disassembly. Notice in the first picture below that all structural parts are marked to enable correct reassembly at the Stone's Trace Historical Society site:
