Title Sheets Cabin Bldg. #291
Date August 22, 1975
Description Photograph shows a side view of the Sheets cabin near mile post 252.4 in section 2D of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Taken by F. A. Ketterson, Jr. on August 22, 1975.
Commentary It appears that the cabin had been moved to this location. The house, identified as a 19th century log cabin, is a good example of the "rustic mountain life" that the National Park Service was trying to create in the area.
