William Arnold Log Cabin

Built in the early 19th century, this was once the home of William Arnold, founder of Williamstown. The two story house is constructed of huge poplar logs with a wood shingle roof characteristic of the log houses built during Kentucky’s early days. Maintained and cared for by the Grant County Historical Society, the building contains pioneer era furniture, memorabilia, early photographs, and artifacts of early Grant County.
