Log Cabin

The log cabin near the Cathedral of Learning symbolizes Pitt’s origins as a frontier academy of higher learning. Estimated to date from the 1820s or 1830s, the cabin was reconstructed on campus for the University’s bicentennial in 1987. University Trustee Charles Fagan III bought the cabin and donated it to Pitt in honor of his wife, Ann Ebbert Fagan, who graduated from the University in 1962.
