Close to the JFK Memorial this single historic pioneers log cabin is a nice surprise. Gives you an idea of the pioneer lifestyle. Definitely worth a quick visit.

John Neely was a settler from Tennessee. He arrived in Dallas in 1841, and built this cabin in 1842. The cabin was built of cedar logs, and was really tiny. It is a nice surprise to see this cabin just across JFJ Monument.

Real cool cabin depicting how was life in the old times, when Dallas was founded. You can get the idea of how far we've come, and how some other things remain the same. Nice reminder of our history.

I found this cabin near the JFK memorial, going to the 6th floor Museum. I'm glad it was preserved. You have just the opportunity to read about it and make a couple of photos and the visit is done.

If you are walking from downtown toward Dealey Plaza you might like to seek out this little cabin for a quick snapshot. Its worn timbers have a lot of character but it is disappointing that there are no views of the interior.
