Burg Montgomery Cabin

The Montgomery Cabin was obtained from Samantha Bays of the Far Middle Fork near the mouth of Paddle Branch and had been the home of Burg Montgomery. There is speculation as to who built this cabin and when. One source believes Silas Montgomery and his wife, Aggie Sizemore, built it. Another source claims it was the Stephens cabin.

The chimney on this reconstructed log cabin originally was attached to the Henry Cabin.

We have furnished this cabin with the former Gunlock, Ky and Foraker, Ky post office cages. The Gunlock post office was procured and donated by Janice Shepherd Cooley. The Foraker Post Office material was donated by Bob and Thelma (Patton) Salyer.

This room also has the glass display case that came from the Grace Howard Store here in Salyersville. The cabin has been decorated in an attempt to capture the old time General Store / Post Office atmosphere with shelves filled with jars and canned goods of yesteryear.
