A view of the Dietrich log cabin in Ottawa, Kansas. From the "Virtual Tourist" web site: Built by hardy German pioneers in the late 1850s, the Dietrich Cabin is the oldest home in Franklin County. Originally built a little outside the town limits (Ottawa not chartered until 1864) and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this walnut-wood cabin stands well-preserved on the grounds of the Ottawa City Park, a classic example of frontier living quarters from the period.
