"Back to the Future"

The theme this week by Craver which is "Back to the Future". Mac, Kathy, Sandy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

My friend Craver came up with a neat subject. I thought about it and of course thought of the movie of the same name. No DeLoreans available so what to show? I decided to show a log cabin that was brought "Back to the Future" from 1808. 
The log cabin was built in 1808 in New Lisbon, Ohio. It was founded as a German newspaper. It was the first newspapers west of Pittsburgh, PA. In 1809 it was changed to English and called The Ohio Patriot.
The log cabin has been updated with a ramp for handicap entry. It also has an updated roof with shingles, air conditioner, modern windows and electric lights. It has been brought "Back to the Future".
It is located on Route 43 in Kent and is in the Davey Arboretum across from the Davey Tree headquarters.
This is a bench that has that has the look of 1808.
See what the others have to show on my side bar.

What a great find! Nice take on the theme. It can be tricky to integrate old and new in a tasteful way. I like the simplicity of this log cabin.

I like this cabin. You've done a great job with this week's theme.

Lew said...

Restored and reused! Nothing better than that for bringing the old building back to the future! Indeed a good choice for the theme.

Hi Tom,
I was just over at Craver's and saw he was on the team. Thought I'd pop over and see how you're doing.
Love that little cabin! Wouldn't mind having it in the woods behind me.
You and Craver took very different paths to the theme.
Hope all has been going well for you.
