The Log Cabin and Its Place in Alpharetta History
Since it was relocated to Milton Avenue Park in 2017, Alpharetta's beloved Log Cabin has undergone extensive renovation under the direction of Jim Spruell and the late Jack Morton. The evening's program will feature a panel discussion on building of the Log Cabin and the many creative ways the community has used it over the past eight decades. Our panelist will also share some of their favorite memories of growing up in Alpharetta. The City's official historian Connie Mashburn will facilitate the discussion. The panelists will be Norman and Martine Broadwell, who for many years conducted heritage programs at the Cabin for Fulton County school children, George Jones, who is the last remaining member of the student group who constructed the Cabin in the 1930s, and lifelong Alpharetta resident Elsie Knight, who along with her late husband Howard, was a founder of the Alpharetta and Old Milton County Historical Society.
