About Pioneer Log Cabin
Operating since: 1935
Designed by Louisville architect Brinton B. Davis, who built many of the historic structures on WKU's campus, the 'pioneer log cabin' was constructed in the mid-1930s to commemorate and interpret Kentucky's pioneer life. Never used for this purpose, the cabin instead housed faculty, staff and international scholars, and once served as the childhood home of film director John Carpenter. In 2004, the building was restored for use for the Folk Studies Program and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.In June 2013, the Pioneer Log Cabin became home to the Kentucky Folklife Program.
