S.P. DINSMOOR

S.P. Dinsmoor, retired Civil War Veteran, started building the Cabin Home and Garden of Eden in 1904, at the age of 64.

His sculptures are as interesting as his biography, with each and every element having a story to tell.

CABIN HOME

When Dinsmoor retired from farming and moved to town, he build a house, the Cabin Home, intended to be both a residence and a source of income. For the exterior, he chose postrock limestone, the fine-quality building stone used in many commercial buildings, houses, barns, and fence posts in the area
