Behunin Cabin
Reviewed August 11, 2018 via mobile

This was a nice little stop and yes it’s right on the highway. It was convenient for me. But it really is a nice stop. Unbelievable this family lived in this tiny cabin.

Can you imagine raising 13 kids in this? Ya, me neither. But this amazing Mormon pioneer family did just that. I was told at the Gifford House that in summer, the boys slept outside. Just the feat of building anything in this remote location gets all my respect. Pull over and get out and read about it. Pretty impressive what these trail-blazing people did.

Worth the brief stop to see the remains of the cabin and read the Behunin family story. Helps to get a sense for what the early pioneers experienced in this area.

This tiny cabin was lived in briefly by the Behunin family (a dozen children). The river's frequent flooding forced the settlers upstream to what is now Fruita. Fascinating construction with the local red slate-like sandstone.

Just go read the sign. It will blow your mind. I'm not sure if the whole family lived here when there were 13 of them, but if so, they must've had to sleep standing up! This place is TINY.
