Cabin takes first step in journey from school to Pioneer Village

A crane lifted the roof off Brownstown Elementary School’s log cabin Monday morning, marking the first step in relocating the building.

The one-room cabin, about 500 square feet in size, sits behind the school on South Base Road and was once used to teach Indiana history to students. It is being moved to the nearby Jackson County History Center, where it will take on a new role.

In 2012, Brownstown Central Community Schools trustees donated the cabin to the history center for its Pioneer Village — less than two miles away on West Spring Street.
