Blakeslee Log Cabin

Built in 1810, the Blakeslee Log Cabin is one of the oldest surviving log structures in the Western Reserve.

One of Ohio’s original log cabins, built in 1810 by John Blakeslee a year after he arrived from Connecticut.

This log house has been home to three immigrant families since that time. It is now being restored and is used as an educational center.

The Blakeslee was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

At this time, the Blakeslee has no formal hours throughout the week. The property is open to the public during special events such as the annual Log Cabin Days, held the weekend after Labor Day.

Admission: No admission charge, but donations accepted.
