Joseph Sappington's Log Home

The 1816 Log cabin has been saved from demolition and will be rebuilt across from Thomas' original brick home inside Sappington Park where it will enlighten future generations. 


Please help future generations to learn from our past by actually walking through the day-to-day lives of our predecessors.  

Video Tour

The Dozenspeed Film Foundation has generously provided time and expertise to create numerous videos during our efforts to save the 1816 log cabin of Joseph Sappington. This is an extensive tour of the home.
