LOCATION: Fort Croghan Museum complex.

Logan Vandeveer (1815-55) came from Kentucky in 1833. He was badly wounded fighting for Texas at San Jacinto, 1836. Moving here to sell beef to Fort Croghan, 1849, he was one of the organizers of the county and original postmaster of the town. In the early 1850s he built this house near Hamilton Creek for a daughter. It stood at 502 South Water Street. Burnet County Historical Society moved it here for preservation in 1973. Porch was floored with stones from an early Burnet county courthouse.

Cabin Donors: Mmes. Leona Rogers Huges; Nancy Riggs Young; Helen Riggs Woodard; and Patricia Riggs Phinney; all Vandeveer descendants.
