Marker Text In 1841 Thomas Jefferson Walling (1811-1902) and his wife Nancy (Price) erected this one-room log cabin. Typical of many pioneer farm homes in this area, it was built of hand-hewn timbers joined at the corners by square notches. Walling was a veteran of the Cordova Rebellion and Indian wars, 1838-1839, and lived here with his family until 1859. The Walling log cabin was moved from its original site (10 mi. NE) to this location in 1982. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983
