Conley/Lemaster Cabin

This cabin was obtained by the Opal Conley family from Joe's Creek near Flat Gap in Johnson County, Kentucky.  The date it was first built is not known, but we learned that the Manford Lemaster family built it.   It was a one-room, story and a half cabin, with a chimney on both sides.  Some rough lumber rooms had been added to it.  It was built as a one-room cabin, but since it and the Davis cabin were built on the same level, a dogtrot or breezeway was added to join the cabins.  The cabin holds a collection of muzzle loading artifacts placed there by AB Conley and other members of the Magoffin County Muzzle Loader's Club.  It also houses some chainsaw sculptures, such as "Old Kawliga," and frontiersmen, made by Douglas Shepherd.
