Moorhead City Council: Date set for moving Moorhead log cabin

A date has been set for moving the log cabin that has sat next to Moorhead’s Woodlawn Park since the 1930s.

The building will be moved starting at 8 a.m. Oct. 19, barring unforeseen schedule changes, said Holly Heitkamp, Moorhead recreation division manager.

The cabin is going to Memorial Park several blocks away.

The city approved the transfer over the objections of residents living near the park who said the cabin was an integral part of the neighborhood.

City officials said the cabin’s foundation had been damaged by repeated flooding, making the entire structure unsafe.
