Historic log cabin (L) and Homestead cabin (R), Ghostown Blues Bed & Breakfast, Highway 271, 1 km west of Maple Creek, SK.
This cabin was originally a cowboy's line shack. On the big ranches, cowboys would stay at these shacks on the prairie when they couldn't make it home at night, Greg Hisey says.
The settlers' cabin in the background was moved into Maple Creek from northeast of town. A previous owner told Hisey that it was moved to a school for a time and used by the schoolmarm. Like many old prairie cabins, this had been moved into town. But unlike most, it was too small to be converted to a garage, so it remained relatively intact all these years.
