Idaho Log Cabin Literary Center
Also known as the Log Cabin Literary Center, this rustic log building was constructed in 1939 utilizing the labor of the Civilian Conservation Corp. Each interior room is finished with indigenous Idaho lumber donated by the State’s timber companies. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The cabin is now used to support artistic and literary endeavors under the direction of The Cabin organization. A quote from their website explains:
“The City of Boise purchased the building from the state in 1992 and signed a long-term lease with the Log Cabin Literary Center in June 1996. Today, The Cabin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Since 2000, The Cabin’s supporters and members have contributed over a half-million dollars for renovations and improvements to the building, creating reading and meeting rooms, classroom spaces, kitchen facilities, and other capital improvements to host its growing programs. A quiet capital campaign continues toward completing the new vision for the cabin, resulting in a unique, independent literary center for Idaho.”
