Hall Co. crews to begin rebuilding historic cabin Monday

Hall County crews will begin the process of rebuilding a historic log cabin home at Cherokee Bluffs Park on Monday.

The cabin belonged to Col. James Roberts and dates back to at least the 1840s. The home was carefully dismantled several years ago by local residents who wanted to rescue it from being demolished as new development swept through the area. It has remained in storage at the Hall County Historical Society ever since.

“Cherokee Bluffs Park is, among many other things, a celebration of South Hall’s history,” said Hall County Parks & Leisure Director Mike Little. “Rebuilding the home on this site will only enhance that purpose and preserve a tangible part of our County’s past.”

The Hall County Board of Commissioners voted in 2014 to rebuild the historic home at the park, which opened in November of 2015.

“Our hope is that the rebuilt cabin will serve as an educational opportunity for children to visit on field trips and for the community at large to see and learn about this area’s history,” said Kathy Cooper, who represents District 1 on the Hall County Board of Commissioners.

Doug Smith is a descendent of Col. Roberts and is a member of the historical society. He said the cabin’s new home is not far from its original location near the intersection of Hog Mountain, Friendship and Bennet roads.

The cabin will be the latest addition to the 168-acre, passive-use park, located along Blackjack Road in Flowery Branch near the Sterling on the Lake subdivision. The park also includes trails, a 2,500-square-foot community building and a 300-400 seat amphitheater.
