Description: Over a period of more than 40 years, Tom Newman purchased five log cabins, carefully taking each one apart, moving them to his property and meticulously putting them back together. The small log cabin village depicting the lifestyle of colonists in the 1800s sits on a section of Newman’s nearly 250-acre farm in McDonald TN. There is also a covered bridge, spring house, blacksmith shop, church/schoolhouse, and several wagons.
