Amazingly, I stumbled across this iconic log cabin in 1980 on my first visit to Dallas, and never forgot it.
Now, 43 years later I stumbled across it again whilst waiting for a JFK Tour.
Exactly as I remembered it, really stands out amongst all the modern buildings, but in a good way, showing how hard it must have been in those early pioneer days.
Whilst it's a replica of the original, it still oozes historical value. I liked it in 1980, and liked it now.

I love the log cabin but it needs some renovation. Where is the plack- where is the history of the little cabin? I love the way it sits among all the large boring and cold new buildings. It speaks to us - Remember who we were!! Do not forget your roots!! Please plant flowers or trees and show respect to your history!!!! Big money isn't what it is all about!

John Neely Bryan founded the city of Dallas in 1841. He served as the postmaster, a storeowner, a ferry operator (he operated a ferry where Commerce Street crosses the Trinity River today) and his home served as the courthouse. The cabin is a restored replica of Bryan's home, the first in Dallas. The original was destroyed by a flood. A historic marker can be found beside this site.

We were curious when we saw this log cabin but there was no information about it. Later we learned that is a replica of a 1841 cabin built in old Dallas. A poor example of trying to show history of the area.

Located across the street from the Old Red Museum. Small cabin with a dedication to the Log cabin pioneers of Dallas County - John Neely Bryan was a colonist who arrived here in 1841 and built a log cabin (much like the one you're looking at).

Why is this cabin even there? We chanced upon it by accident and were unable to learn anything about it until later when we Googled it and still don't know much about it. Just a little replica of a log cabin surrounded by a lot of office buildings. Very strange!

I see it all the time when I go downtown. Just a little wooden cabin sitting in the plaza near the Kennedy Memorial. Don't make a special trip to see it.

Not Mr. Bryan's cabin but a replica that is near Texas School Book Depository and Old Red Courthouse.

It was just there, in the open, and I stumbled on it while walking around the historic area of Dallas. If you are reading this, now you know: don't miss it.

A great piece of history. You will not learn much but it was nice to see. I read the plaque and viewed the cabin while waiting for my tour guide to show for the JFK tour.
