What started as a desire to restore an old log cabin has resulted in a new look for Wehmhoff Square, and the Burlington Historical Society has helped save another historic building from destruction. The old log cabin was given to the city and was in Echo Lake Park for many years; the society furnished the building each summer as a tourist attraction. When it began to deterio- rate the city decided it must go. Doug Lind persuaded the Society that the building was worth saving. First with reluc- tance and then with enthusiasm, the city allowed a piece of the Square to be used. Under the guidance of Lind and his crew of restorers the cabin was totally dismantled, the wood treated and restored. It is being reassembled and will be ready sometime in 1999. Flower gardens, under the direction of the Burlington Area Garden Club, will bloom with pioneer era plants and flowers. A Gazebo has been erected and Wehmhoff Square can again ring with the music of a band. T LARUE PAINT CO.
