Hayden has extended the time Hamilton people can request the logs, which will be awarded to people whose projects meet as many of these city-ranked goals as possible, including: Used within Hamilton, help restore another historic property, used for a project the public can benefit from (within a park, museum, etc.), done by a Hamilton organization, business, or individual is submitting the proposal and designating part of any proceeds from the logs to benefit the non-profit Historic Hamilton.
A form to request one or more of the logs can be found at this link: Historic Log Cabin Logs.
Hamilton historian Brian Lenihan said he was disappointed the city didn’t do more to save the cabin: “Of course, I haven’t been inside it, but I think the city should have done more to try and save it.” “I have a deep appreciation for historic preservation,” Hayden said. “And there’s no doubt we could always do more, if we had unlimited resources.”
Logs from a historic log cabin that had to be torn down are available for Hamilton projects. PROVIDED
