Dexter Cabin

Lake County

The log cabin was built in 1879 by Leadville banker and mining magnate James V. Dexter for use as a hunting lodge.

Although the exterior appears ordinary, the inside is elegantly finished.  The cabin was moved to its present location adjacent to the Healy House, at the Healy House Museum.
