Uncle Tom's Cabin Project

Report in Danville Advocate-Messenger

Many of the logs for the replica of Uncle Tom’s Cabin came from a house on Danville Street, Lancaster, that was torn down in 2008 by the Lancaster Church of Christ, and stored at Feldman Lumber Company until being moved to current site. Above right, the drawing by Tim Scott of Garrard County shows what the replica of Uncle Tom's Cabin will look like.
