Long Description:
From (visit link)
A typical Florida "Cracker" log home of the pioneer period, it was built about the year 1852 by Captain James Parramore McMullen near Clearwater. He and his wife Elizabeth raised 11 children here, and records show that over 55 children were born in the cabin during the years it was occupied. In 1977, it was donated to Heritage Village and has since been restored and furnished to its original condition.

From the sign in front of the cabin...
James and Elizabeth McMullen built this 1 1/2 story log cabin near Alligator Creek, part of present day Clearwater. They raised livestock and farmed, growing a variety of cops including cotton. Their cattle ended up on dinner plates throughout the South and even cuba. The McMullens pursued opportunies during the turbulent years following the Civil War by selling cattle to Cuba where the economy was stable. By 1869 the family manufactured syrup barrels and held sugar cane grinding parties. Later they converted their cotton fields into citrus groves.
