Souvenir Logs.

From time to time log homes have come or been brought to public attention. First and foremost was as a political symbol in the 1844 presidential election, when log cabins won the vote for William Henry Harrison. They persist as an attribute of Abraham Lincoln, both man and myth. Pictures of log buildings also found fame early in the 20th century — on postcards.

Some people avoid the log-home buying-and-building process by buying a log home that’s already been built. Lucy Tkachenko is one of those people. While visiting family in Roanoke, Virginia, she and her sister were driving along a creek-side road in mountains outside of town so her sister could show her a cabin. “I absolutely fell in love with it,” Lucy recalls.
