Did you know? When the O'Farrells built their cabin, they chinked the spaces between the cottonwood logs with small branches and clay, said city historians. They covered the inside walls with fabric. The floor was dirt until O'Farrell covered it with planks in 1864. The cabin stands near an interestingly incongruous neighbor — the U.S. Federal Building, a classic of modern, mid-century style — designed by Charles Hummel.
