This cabin was built by the ancestors of Leo Rainey in the late 1790's in the beautiful Meadow Fork community of Madison County, NC. This area is North of Asheville next to Meadow Fork Creek in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cabin was constructed of hand hewed yellow poplar trees from virgin timber. The trees were hewed with a broad axe and the ends were dove tailed. The dove tailed corners are an example of the finest workmanship. The Rainey's were approached by the Smithsonian Institute in the early 1960's to buy their log cabin homestead because of its excellent condition and because it was the oldest standing log cabin in western North Carolina. At that trime the Raineys were using the cabin as a tabacco barn and refused to sell to the Smithsonian. The cabin was originally chinked with red clay mud and the inside walls were covered with newspapers and magazines attached with paste made of flour and water. We moved the cabin to Boyd mountain in 1991 where it was restored. The 20' x 22' cabin was built as a story and a half with a loft. The original hand hewed ceiling joists are the ceiling joists now in place.
