(KSL News) Some of the staff and patrons of This is the Place Heritage Park spent their Labor Day laboring.
It was a labor of love; working to preserve history with a good old-fashioned cabin raising.
They were re-erecting a cabin that was donated some time ago, torn apart, and each part labeled for easy reconstruction.
The cabin originally stood in Emery County. Heritage Park Promotions Coordinator Kristy Goff said, "It served as a post office, and we're also under the impression that it was a schoolhouse at the time. Most of the cabins in Emery County were actually dugouts. So this was one of the only actually freestanding cabins in the area."
They tried to use historically accurate tools for the reconstruction.
