Crews Moving 1872 Log Cabin

UTICA, SD -
Our January heat wave is sparking a different type of cabin fever.
A log cabin in Utica has weathered nearly 140 South Dakota winters. Rather than having it torn down, the owners are donating the cabin to a museum in Wagner.
There's nothing pre-fab about this frontier home that was built way back in 1872.
"My mother said the oxen brought the Cottonwood lumber up from the Missouri River to build the log cabin," Cheryl Mack said.
License plates served as insulation for the cabin to keep the cold winds from blowing through the cracks in the walls.
A truck hauled the cabin to Wagner where it will be restored and go on display.
