The old David Steele log home donated to Steele Creek...

From Bristol History on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 in Clubs & Organizations & Posts
The old David Steele log home donated to Steele Creek Park. This will be a wonderful preservation effort. Though it has not been determined the age of the cabin it was David Steele's son's homestead. During the Union raid on Bristol-Goodson he was mustered on Main Street, eventually captured and sent to prison in the North. The story is that he was never to see his home again. There is a lot of local history with this property which I have visited. Tim

Wish they would not relocate the cabin. It certainly a wonderful gift but seems a shame to take it apart and move it. I would think a trail to the cabin in its current location would work.

Thanks James! That is a gift of great historical significance to be enjoyed for generations to come. It tells the story of life in an earlier time when most of those examples have been erased from our landscape.
