The John Kinzer log cabin, constructed in 1828, is located just east of Keystone Avenue on the north side of 131st street. This structure is on the National Register of Historic Places.

It is good to see this cabin still stands. this was built by my great-great grandfather. My mother lived on the farm till she was a teenager. she always talked about the Kinzer Family History while I was growing up. CArmel is a beautiful city.

Hi Shelly

Thanks for your comments and information. Yes, it is amazing and so wonderful that this buidling has been preserved. Today, there is precious little to remind us of our historical roots. Have you written down some of the stories you heard growing up? If not, please do so and share them with the Carmel Historical society.
