LEWISTON -- A pioneer cabin made of rough-hewn logs and thought to be about 145 years old has been taken apart and reassembled by a team of volunteers in northern Idaho.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that the Miranda House cabin came down Friday so it could be moved and put back together Saturday.

The 10-by-12-foot cabin originally stood at the current location of a fast food restaurant in Lewiston. In 1937 it was moved next to the old Carnegie Library in Pioneer Park.

The most recent move places it near the Nez Perce County Courthouse and away from water damage from sprinklers at its previous location.

Historians say the cabin was built in 1867 by a Nez Perce Indian who traded it and 40 acres of land for a pair of mules.
