I've been designing and making collectible handmade teddy bears under my company name, Just Wee Bears since 1989.
I also have a shop "A Vintage Obsession" on etsy since 2009 in which I have expanded my love of all things vintage.
The Historical Society placed the cabin in the same direction that is was built originally because the wood weathered according to it's original direction. The outside visible wood is all original as is the glass in the windows and most of the floor boards. The outside wooden shutters have gun holes in case of an Indian attack. Both the front and back doors were replaced with doors of the same vintage. The roof is all new but represents how the original roof might have looked. The ceiling beams are all from the original cabin.
