Pioneer Log Cabin Museum
Learn about those who came here before you at the Pioneer Log Cabin Museum. You’ll meet the pioneer settlers who first established the community of Cassopolis in the early 19th century. The museum is housed in a restored log cabin that was built by one of the early pioneer families in the area. Exhibits focus on the daily life of the pioneer settlers and the challenges they faced as they worked to establish their homes and communities in a new and unfamiliar environment. See artifacts and displays on the tools and equipment used, as well as the foods they ate, the clothing they wore, and how they entertained themselves. One of the most popular exhibits at the Pioneer Log Cabin Museum is the recreated pioneer kitchen, which features period-appropriate cooking utensils and appliances. Visitors can see how meals were prepared on a wood-burning stove, and learn about the different techniques used to cook and preserve food in the 19th century.
