This cabin was built in 1816 by Issac Kellerman at the northwest corner of Dansville-Conesus Road and Jones Hill Road, a major early stage route. It is one of five known surviving log cabins in the Genesee Valley that dates back to the first decades of the nineteenth century.
In 1978 the cabin was moved from it's original location to Ricky Green Town Park. The cabin was carefully dismantled and every piece was labeled to assure it's exact reconstruction.
The cabin is presently headquarters for the Ganeasos History Keepers, a local historical society. The cabin is open for town celebrations and history programs for local school children.
