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.

We were glad we stopped at this tiny, understated cabin. The historical marker indicated that a large family had lived and farmed here until their crops failed. Given the somewhat harsh and arid surroundings, it drove home the difficulties that early settlers faced in 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.

Get to know the history of it and imagine how life would like back then with the harsh environment. Pioneering in this area must be very challenging, hard enough for the Behunin to just stayed there for 1 year.
