Uncle Tom's Cabin to be Restored

Logs moved to site

Thursday, April 16th, was an exciting day in Lancaster, KY. The logs to reconstruct Uncle Tom's cabin were delivered to the Gov. William Owsley House. Some of the logs are about 250 years old. It is hoped that this building project will be completed by the end of summer 09. Please visit link that follows to view delivery. Pictures taken in sequence and make an interesting slide show. http://picasaweb.google.com/garysefcak/UncleTomSCabinArrives41609?authkey=Gv1sRgCJbYwoi1-anp9wE
