log cabin at Cobblestone Farm, Ann Arbor, February 2014

Cobblestone Farm Log Cabin

I Spy: February 2014

by Sally Bjork

From the March, 2014 issue

"This is the log cabin adjacent to Cobblestone Farm," writes Janine Chey, "where my kids used to attend summer day camps." Pamela Kittel calls it "a fine example of efficient home design for frigid winters before insulation." For Robert DeBona, though, "hearing stories about the early pioneers" gives him "extra appreciation" for central heat, air conditioning, and refrigeration.

"The cabin is known by a few names," writes Olivia Popp, "including the Willis Cabin, Lucy Look Cabin, and Harris Cabin." While Lucy Look and Harris refer to former occupants, Judi Taylor notes that Willis refers to its original location "at 8691 McKean Road, just north of Willis Road ... in Augusta Township." That's very near the hamlet of Willis, Michigan. (Thanks, Judi.)

We received twenty-two correct entries including one from Candie Sorensen, who volunteers as a Master Gardener for Cobblestone Farm, and one from Ellen Willson, who writes, "Thanks for motivating us to be observant!" Our winner, randomly drawn from among the correct entries, is Evelyn Hepla of Ypsilanti. She'll enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Zingerman's.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue on the Back Page of the March issue to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
