Yanda Log Cabin

Yanda Log Cabin
  1. About
  2. Visit

A cabin that showcases the rise of Glen Carbon, the Yanda Log Cabin was home to Bohemian immigrants William and Anna Yanda. It was built on an offshoot of the Goshen Trail and established necessary blacksmithing services for weary travelers. The Yanda family passed this cabin down through the generations until they sold it in the 1940s.

Discovered underneath aluminum siding in 1989 and restored shortly after, this cabin has since served as a local gathering place for Glen Carbon residents, hosting events like field trips, apple butter festivals, pioneer days, sewing circles, and more. 

The Village of Glen Carbon is proud to share this history with you. Stop by to view the inside of the cabin through its new glass doors and read more about its construction, discovery, and restoration on the front porch podium or by clicking information panel.
