Authentic pioneer log cabin on a golf course

On Tuesday I braved the "No Trespassing" sign off of Golf Road in the town of Golf to photograph a vintage log cabin at the 17th hole at the Glen View Club. It was built by John Dewes, who was one of the first European settlers in Niles Township, Illinois.

Those portholes you see are supposedly so the Dewes family could defend themselves with rifles if there was an Indian attack.
