Your help is needed. The 1800s Log structures desperately need restoration. The Friends of the Log Cabins Association (FLC), is a non profit 501c3 organization formed to restore, preserve and utilize the Log structures in the village. The FLC hosts special events and conducts tours of the site, to educate school children and raise public awareness about the village. One such event is the annual Frontier Settlement Day scheduled for the second Saturday in September. The FLC needs to raise funds to restore the structures. Tax deductible donations can be sent to Friends of the Log Cabins, P.O. Box 3122, Quincy, IL 62305. Click the "Donations Form" and do a File/Print. The plan is to restore and preserve this village, so current and future generations can "reflect a bit from whence we came".
