Primary Cabin Felling Date: Summer 1800
Site Master 1675-1799 (yellow pine) HTVAx1 (t = 5.58 WATVA; 5.48 LGS7; 5.40 BLV).
Hitt Cabin is a two-room log cabin with accommodation in the attic, it has two exterior stone end chimneys. The interior is finished with timber panelling, but the building was in very bad condition at the time of sampling, with one complete wall missing.
Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the building was constructed from timbers felled in the summer of 1800.
