The Boy Scout Cabin in 1930 (85)

Nearing Completion, May, 1928 (UCD Special Collections)

The Davis Boy Scout Cabin was built in May, 1928. In a September 19, 1930 story, the Davis Enterprise declared the structure as a “landmark.”

According that status to a building that was well less than two years old suggests a phenomenal response to a seemingly modest structure.

This and other aspects of the now fabled cabin are described in that 1930 Enterprise story, which is reproduced in this post.
