c. 1838

This cabin was built during the Republic of Texas period (1836-1845) and represents the simple architecture of early frontier days. Located in what is now Guadalupe County Texas, it was constructed of winged elm logs chinked with mud from a nearby streambed. The roofing was hand-split pecan shakes; the floor was compacted earth. Multiple door opening were cut into the logs in later years, when the cabin may have served as slave quarters or a kitchen. El Capote, or "the cape," was named for nearby hills that spread out like a cloak.
