Log Cabins, Drace Park


Given as a gift by the Drace Family, the small park in Town and Country contains three log cabins. This cabin above and below is the Kropp Cabin, from 1855, when this area was far out in the country.


The Estill Log Cabin was moved to the site from Clayton and Bopp Roads, where it has been restored.


I am not sure what this cabin’s identity is, but it looks like it was restored recently.

    The third house is the Oge Cabin, also from the 1850s. It was once part of New Alsace (serving as a post office and store. It was in the middle of a house on Conway Road which was being demolished for a McMansion. To the owners’ credit, they donated it to Town and Country to be preserved.
