MILLSAP MATTERS: Log Cabin Days’ fun and history makes for another successful event


MILLSAP – As the long-awaited Log Cabin Days Festival has come and gone there is much news about the event to be shared.

Friday, May 9, saw fourth-grade students from Millsap and Garner have an educational day on pioneer history around the cabins.

The students were given instruction on quilting and candle making. They churned butter which was eaten on campfire cooked cornbread. There was a display of a blanket trader’s wares, and representations of Civil War soldiers, with information given on these subjects. Teaching on horse care and barbed wire making and its uses was presented. The kids washed clothes on a rub board and shelled corn on an antique machine. The cabins were toured and the event wrapped up with lunch at picnic tables. This was a great morning for both students and volunteers.

Saturday started off at 5 a.m. with cooks preparing an outdoor breakfast for over 250 people. The food was ready at 7 a.m. and everyone enjoyed until midmorning. With more than 50 booths there was a wide variety of things both modern and “old-timey” to see. There were a lot of laughs as young ones participated in a kiddy tractor pull. Lunch could be found at a several booths, plus there was a variety of delicious baked goods. 

The festival also featured raffles and David Locket won a bedspring wreath from the Abandoned Cemetery Association, with Doris Norman the winner of a plant from the Millsap Alumni Scholarship Foundation. Trevor Stephens was the winner of the quilt raffled by the Millsap Heritage Society. The Heritage Society sends a special thank you to Jim Scoffield who donated the quilt. The festival gets bigger and better each year thanks to all of the hard work of the Millsap Heritage Society. An absolutely great event!
