Shelton Laurel Cabin
This cabin was built by the Shelton ancestors of Shelton Laurel, North Carolina. This cabin was located in a quiet cove in Madison County, NC, close to Mars Hill and 20 miles form Asheville. The cabin was built during the year of 1868, and moved to its present site on Boyd Mountain in 1975. The cabin is 18' x 20' and originally had four doors and one window. The logs are of virgin yellow poplar timber and were all hand hewn with a broad axe, and dove-tailed into a mountain cabin of a story and a half. The half is the loft. the original floors are presently used in the cabin. The cabin was originally chinked with red clay mud and the inside walls were covered with many layers of newspapers and magazines which were attached by a paste of flour and water. The foundation was laid with stacked field stones. All floor joists and rafters are presenlty used were hewed by hand. The roof was constructed of hand made white oak splits, today called shingles. Many a mountain man and his family have walked through these doors, so sit back and enjoy a cabin of the past.
