Barnard-Newell Cabin Interior

The Barnard-Newell Cabin at Pioneer Park is a dogtrot log house built around 1830 by enslaved people owned by Creek military leader Maj. William Barnard. He served under U.S. general John Floyd during the Creek War of 1813-14 and was awarded 640 acres in what is now Lee County as a reward. The cabin passed through several owners after Barnard's death and was donated by owner Newell Floyd to the Lee County Historical Museum in 2013 and relocated to the park grounds.
