This cabin is important because it is a small example of what people had to do to survive during this time. The boys slept in the cave, but they did not know any different. The family worked each day for their existence. No welfare payments...More

This cabin is further east of the park. It isn't a long distance and worth the drive. Imagine living in a cabin like this. Look at the rock mountain behind the cabin as that is where the Behunin boys slept. The Fremont River use to...More

Small cabin for a family of 10! Can't miss the cabin as it's right off the side of the road. Well worth the stop to read the description and think about how these people lived.

The willpower of the early settlers to this area of the state is apparent as you visit this homestead. To imagine that ten family members called this tiny structure home is amazing! Granted, only the parents and two youngest children slept in the house. The...More

This is a place to let your children appreciate what they have. A whole family lived in this little cabin. The boys slept on ledges in the rocks in the summer. It is a very little cabin.
