Franklin Log Cabin, 3960 Portland Road NE, (D)

When the Franklin family lived in their Portland Road residence, this cabin was moved there from Lloyd Reynold’s home nearby. He had previously used it as a “clubhouse” for his gentlemen friends ~ a place where they could play cards and smoke their cigars away from women-folk’s disapproval. No one knows its true age, but this “rustic architecture” is reflected in our own Oregon Park hotels, built in the same romantic spirit of the 1930s, recalling our past.
