About

Volunteers of the Craig County Historical Society are raising funds to rebuild an 1800-era cabin near its original location.  The Holstein Cabin was originally located along Craigs Creek, near New Castle, VA.  

THE HOLSTEIN CABIN

The cabin was relocated to the Explore Park in Roanoke, VA, but is slated to be moved again. The Historical Society has procured the receiving of the original materials of this cabin, and are in the process of moving each piece back to where the cabin was first built.  Standing the test of time for generations, there are still many usable original pieces that can once again be part of this wonderful piece of history.  The cabin will become a teaching tool, showing first-hand the design and habitat of living on the Virginia frontier from a century ago.  The knowledge will be passed along to current and future generations, thanks to your tax-deductible donations.

OLD BRICK HOTEL

As with previous projects, such as refurbishing parts of the Old Brick Hotel, the Historical Society knows that being situated in a rural area with limited resources, donations are needed.

 The Historical Society welcomes the challenges of compiling and preserving pieces of  local history, and having the priceless items available for visitors to view and learn from.

 

 

THE KEFFER CABIN  

Along with two other cabins on display (The Hawkins Cabin and the Keffer Cabin), the Historical Society looks forward to rebuilding the Holstein Cabin near its original site.  These cabins are life-size learning tools for present and future generations.

Risks and challenges

As the risks for this are low, the Craig County Historical Society knows a lack of funding will delay completion of this project. Being a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers, it is our hope to raise the remaining money needed to complete this undertaking. Land for the cabin has already been acquired, and a contractor has been hired. All that is needed to preserve this piece of history is the funds to get the rebuilding started. Located in a very rural area with a low population, resources are limited. Projects are accomplished through fund raisers and tax-deductible donations.
