Just ahead is the Filer Cabin at 1228 Ankeney Road.  At first glance, it appears a traditional frame farmhouse of the early 20th century.  In fact, it is a well preserved log cabin circa 1820 that was covered with wooden lap siding, possible built by the Heddleson family.

Of historical significance, the first recipe for making artificial color for butter in the world was perfected in a shed that stood next to the cabin.  This occurred shortly after August 2, 1866 when the USDA announced that the coloring of butter was now permitted by law.

Also alleged, but unsubstantiated, is that there was a blacksmith shop on the property that led to the making of the first leather mailbags.
