This beautiful log and stone cabin has an amazing history. It was once located on the Smith River,200 miles from Georgetown Lake. In 1997 a fifteen foot tall ice jam lifted it from its original foundation and slid it approximately one mile downstream. - - - intact! The cabin was rescued from this precarious perch, disassembled log by log, moved to Georgetown and rebuilt. A picture album tells the story.
