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

About Bristol History:

The BRISTOL HISTORY has been up and running for nine years. It was the first to be dedicated to the overall history of the city and preceded by the FB FANS OF BUNTINGS DRUG STORE, who's administrator died a short time later. In 2008 we felt there was interest in a broader dedicated to the Twin-Cities and BRISTOL HISTORY was begun. Founding administrator Gary Rose retired from the but BRISTOL HISTORY continues with current administrators Tim Buchanan, Jessie Manuel and Fred South. The is associated with the Bristol Historical Association, with whom I am the 2017 president. The will continue in a similar form but with new material, special columns and reports on historical projects and events throughout our city. If it's happening we'll make an effort to let you know about it. A PAGE is open to the general public and we welcome you to take a peek, post photographs and stories, ask questions and let others know what is going on in the city. Tim BuchananIt is my desire that this site may be used as an open classroom to learn, debate, share, and enjoy the stories about the people and events that have made Bristol a "Good Place to Live"

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.
