The Historic Pioneer Spring Log Cabin, also known as the Brady Cabin is in need of some repairs. The City Council had 3 bid they discussed which were inapropriate since they involved moving and modifying the structure or storing the structure and lastly demolishing the structure.
I am asking people to demand that the structure be restored where it sits, and to NOT be modifide to be used as a merchant, and to NOT be given away.
This site is more then the Log Cabin, its also a memorial to the Potawatomie Indians that were driven from indiana to Miami County in 1838 on the Trail of Death. This site also overlooks a spring to the west that was important for the settling of what was once called Big Springs and now known as Independence.
I argue we can not wipe away our histroy. We can not give away our history. It may not be Lincoln's boyhood log cabin like Mayor Eileen Weir said but it was the home of one of Independence pioneers and is an example how people in our hometown once lived.
Independence is on the list of history in peril and we can not afford to loose another piece of our past.
If the Mayor and council can give away tax payer land for free to an attorney, if they can build a 3.3 million dollar farmers market, if they can spend 6 million more then they need to on Mo City that benefits a company associated to pacs that were major donor to Mayor Eileen Weir then they need to find $100,000.00 to restore the building though id argue it should be able to be done cheaper then that.
