Title A Log Cabin
Description A LOG CABIN Eleanor P. Madsen 295 East 1st North Ephraim, Utah In the summer of 1987 a lawn was planted, a cement foundation laid and a pioneer cabin placed in the new " Heritage Park" in Ephraim.

Xt is typical of the cabins the early pioneers built in the late 1800's as they settled Sanpete County. As the city of Ephraim expanded, adobe, brick, and city, near the foothills, a little community known as Manasseh grew. In the early 1900' s a dozen or more log cabins dotted the landscape, establishing rights on the farm land. One of the early settlers in Manasseh was Franklin Bailey, who, like many others, brought cedar and pine logs from the west hills and built a log cabin. To begin with, the stored his barley, wheat and oats as he the land were established and Franklin met and married Mary Chris tensen, he decided that they should have a home in Ephraim. Like others from Manasseh he moved to town, but unlike many others, who left their log homes in Manasseh to be used in the summer harvest time, Franklin moved his log cabin to Ephraim. Here on First West between Second and Third North, the cabin began its long history of sheltering within its plastered walls succeeding generations of the Bailey family. The cabin rested on an earth foundation potatoes, carrots, parsnips and other produce was kept. Another room of lumber was added on
