Historical Society receives unexpected gift

Posted:

MARBLE ROCK (KWWL) -- The Marble Rock historical society recently received an unexpected gift - a log cabin.

The cabin was built in the 1850s by the town's founder, Jacob Beelar.

Gary Schmidt bought the house last year with the intent to build a house on the site. Rather than tearing down the home, they decided to donate it to the historical society, which plans to move the cabin to downtown Marble Rock.
