I have seen this elsewhere.... log cabins....
were built by Swedes who came 18 years later.....

It is good to know that the Swedes brought the
log cabin to this country!!

from a report i gave to my local Scandinavian Heritage Group
the VASA Lodge...
"The concept of the log house was brought to America by the first Swedish colonists, who established their colony, "New Sweden", in 1638.... The knowledge of log house construction was disseminated throughout the colonies and later throughout the whole country. "
