Glenhaven Cabin opened in January of 2000. It is built on the edge of the Troyer farm in a 6-acre, secluded and private meadow. It is a genuine log cabin, built with logs that were shipped from Montana. It has a cozy, peaceful atmosphere due to its structure and location. Although it may take one back to the days of "Ma & Pa" in the Big Woods, it has all of today's conveniences and amenities from carpeted floors, remote controlled gas fireplace, to satellite TV.
Gnadenhutten, Ohio's oldest existing settlement, prospered until the outbreak of the Revolutionary War when the Indians were driven from their homes. In February 1782, they were allowed to return to their village. On March 8, 1782, following a night of hymn singing and prayer, 90 men, women and children were massacred and all of the cabins were set on fire by the Pennsylvania Militia. Today, a museum, mass grave and monument, and two reconstructed log buildings commemorate this tragic event. In 1798, the village was re-established as a white settlement. A 35-foot monument was erected on the grounds of the Historical Park. The museum houses artifacts as well as an extensive arrowhead collection.
