Log cabin is bogged cabin

Due to the uniqueness of the moving operation, it took a little longer to brace up and ready the old log cabin at Fairgrounds Road and Stampede Boulevard.
It was scheduled to move one block west to new digs on the Fairgrounds proper, south of Presidents Hall, but movers got involved in bracing up the river-rock fireplace and allowing for a few angles that ended up being out-of-true. So the cabin was rescheduled to move the day after the Central Kitsap Reporters deadline on Monday, Oct. 13.
The entire operation comes after after three-and-a-half years of struggle to save the historic structure as a museum and meeting hall for the Fairgrounds.
Its been parked on the periphery of Kitsap County Fairgrounds for a decade, along with a log stable, recently torn down after it was declared unstable and unfixable.
