The Gladie Cabin is a reconstructed log home dating back to the late 1800s, during the logging period of Kentucky's history. The land on which the cabin is built has been passed on through many people. The land was eventually used for subsistence farming, and later as a logging camp for the booming timber industry.
Nearby Gladie Creek was home to many families who frequented the small community center. A school, cemetery and small store were once there. Today, the Gladie Historic Site still features the Gladie cabin and shows what life would have been like for these early settlers.
