On the Wyanet-Walnut blacktop, in a spot so forlorn you'd zip right past it if you didn't see the historical marker sign, is a marker commemorating the sight of Henry's cabin. The first known cabin in the county. It sits down an embankment and is surrounded by woods and weeds. Indeed, it looks like no one has stopped there in ages.
So on this father's day, let us pause for a moment in honor of the man who started the whole shebang in Bureau County, Illinois. Happy Fathers day Henry.
A big Thank You to the various people from this site who suggested I take the time to stop and see this.
