This cabin was built in 1878 by Norwegian immigrant Carl Bjerke Jensen, made from hand-hewn oak. The cabin and the land were donated to the State Historical Society by the Wadeson family in 1957. This cabin was in pretty bad shape until it was restored in 1981.
I stumbled upon this place while taking a drive near Kathryn, North Dakota.
This is the Wadeson Park Spillway, right across the road from the Jensen Cabin.
