TBT: Long Before the Monticello Library

Long before the Monticello Library⁠—and Shawnee, Kansas for that matter⁠—there was a small settlement called Monticello Township. This log cabin is historically known as the Monticello Cabin. And, as you very well know, Thursday, June 25, is Log Cabin Day!

This beautiful abode was moved in 1976 from its original location and is now part of Old Shawnee Town. Originally, it was 2 stories and had a dirt floor.

Happy Throwback Thursday! Some call it the best day of the week.
