The Davis Hollow Cabin 14 June 2016

Davis Hollow Cabin

The Davis Hollow Cabin is one of two historic facilities along the North Country Trail. Volunteers manage and maintain the cabin, devoting their time and energy in order to preserve the cabin’s history for future generations to enjoy.  

Construction began on the cabin before the start of the American Revolution. The hand-hewn logs and hand-carved stone are superb examples of pioneer construction. Located behind the Davis Hollow Marina at present-day Moraine State Park, the cabin served as a summer home for Mrs. Katherine Davis and her sister, Miss Eleanor Holt, before the park’s development. Today, the North Country Trail Association (NCTA) leases the cabin from the park.

Sharing a local treasure from all sides and angles.


Always in love with stone chimneys

 Got a good look at the hand hewn Logs as we climbed to the back.

And found an inviting back porch

Shuttered windows - winters can be harsh in the hollow. 

And unique shutter hooks

We will be going back someday with a picnic basket in hand
