Zane Log Cabin in Wheeling

Generally considered to be the the first building in Wheeling, this cabin was thought to be built in 1769 by Ebenezer Zane. Legend has it that this is the cabin to which Elizabeth Zane made the run to for gun powder during the siege of Ft. Henry, September 11, 1782. The cabin was demolished around 1908. 


 ▶ The cabin was located at 22 Lane 7 between 10th and 11th Streets and Main and Market, in what is now often referred to as Stone's Alley.
