Joseph Staker Cabin

  • Built in Prattsville, Utah 1873
  • Relocated in 1996

Joseph Smith Staker and his wife, Sarah Brown, built this cabin in 1873 in Prattsville, four miles east of Richfield. Its foundation was lava rock, with a large flat piece used for the front step. The logs were carefully hand-notched so they could be locked together. The Stakers lived in this one-room cabin, where six of their eleven children were born, from 1873 until 1885.
