Annual Special Event
Log Cabin Village Open House
Quincy, Illinois

May, 2019


Location: Quinsippi Island Park, Quinsippi Island Road, Quincy, IL

Date: Sunday, May 6, 2018

Times: 1 pm - 4 pm

Description: The Friends of the Cabins will be having an Open House at the village to show off the village, which was built in the late 1960s to save and preserve structures that were located on area farms and in the way of future roads. As you slowly drive across the one lane bridge consider that you will be traveling back in time to the early 1800s.

As you walk up to the village, stop by the informational Kiosk, built by an Eagle Scout, to pick up a brochure about the structures. Then walk over to the informational sign that tells about the forming of the village and it asks you to "reflect a bit from whence we came". The village is made up of 4 log cabins (two of which will be open for viewing), a log Corn Crib and a Stone Smoke House all built and used by early pioneers who settled this area in the early 1800s. The village has a Log Church called “The Lord’s Barn” which represents the first Church in Quincy.
