The Log Cabin: Dr. Sam Crawford lived on the historic Crawford farm on Duncan Road in the City of Maryville, Tennessee. The original home place was still standing and had been vacant for many years. Dr. Crawford told Jim Robbins and his brother Bill that they could have the wood in the house if they would tear it down. (There had been people in and out of the house, and Dr. Crawford was afraid someone was going to get hurt because the house was in such bad shape.) In the late 1970's Jim, Bill, and their wives, Vonnie and Rose, began to tear the house down. When they started tearing down the kitchen, they found a log cabin that the house had been built around! They decided to number and label each piece as they took it apart so they could re-assemble it on the Robbins farm. This process took a long time. In the early 1980's they began painstakingly reassembling the log cabin and reconstructed it on the property. It now looks much the way it would have in the Pioneer days of Maryville and East Tennessee (Late 1700's-early 1800's). It took several years to complete the cabin. Jim Robbins oversaw doing all the stone work. Many different people are credited for helping during the years the log cabin was being reconstructed. The family has many photos and articles documenting the original tear down house, discovery of the log cabin within the house, disassembly and removal from original site, as well as reconstruction photos. We have some of this information in the documents tab on our website!
