From Lincoln to Logs

Record #:
Wilmington native Henry Bacon was responsible for designing the Lincoln Memorial and, on a smaller scale, for creating a distinct log cabin style within the state. The Linville style, named for the town of Linville, is a distinct style of mountain cabins, cottages, and churches which uses chestnut bark shingles. The article offers a brief biography of Bacon's life and how his background and life in North Carolina influenced the 'Linville design.'
