This log structure, acquired as part of Reddy Branch Stream Valley Park, was once part of Oakley Farm. Built before or just after emancipation, the cabin is representative of slave or tenant housing and is a rare surviving example. Reddy Branch, which flows through the parkland to the rear of the cabin, once provided water power for a mill in nearby Brookeville. The mill race, a trench engineered to carry water to the mill, still flows the contour of Brookeville Road.
