Speed Cabin

Located just beside the Lane Place, this small cabin can be viewed through glass paneling inside the doorway. It is difficult to see the inside of the cabin because of the darkness and reflections on the glass. The cabin was not originally located next to the Lane House, but it was moved to this location, so the historical society could preserve the building.

Nevertheless, it is interesting to see a typical American house from the mid 1800s. The Lane House next door also started as a log cabin. The Speed Cabin served as a stop on the underground railroad before the civil war.

  • It is free to walk by and observe
  • It is located next to the Henry Lane Place
