Built by the Cooper family circa 1810, the cabin was an original county homestead. It was enlarged after the Civil War and family descendants remained in the cabin until 1963. In 1976, the cabin and grounds were bequeathed to the Society. The cabin is furnished with family heirlooms and memorabilia as well as other period pieces. Outbuildings include a spinning house and a spring-house. There is also an extensive herb garden graciously maintained every year by the Herbal Thymes Garden Club of Saxonburg. Cooper Cabin is now closed for the season. If you would like to help plan activities at this site for the 2012 season, please give us a call at 724-283-8116. Also, if there are some special programs you’d like to see presented at the cabin, send your ideas to us! The cabin is located on Cooper Road near Cabot, just off Route 356, approximately 9 miles south of Butler.
