Tate Log House ~ Tunica Mississippi

While we were in Downtown Tunica, we decided to stop by and see the Tate Log House.  It was built in 1840 and is one of the oldest structures still standing in Tunica.



I don't think they know who built this Dogtrot style home but it was purchased by Samuel Kerr in the 1860s and then in the 1890 Robert F and Simpson Tate purchased the cabin.   It then became a Plantation Commissary.

The Log cabin stayed in the Tate family until 1952.  It was then moved to Elsie, Miss.  and then moved again.  Eventually it was donated to The Tunica Museum in 2000 and it was moved to where it stands today.

Lots of miles put on the Tate Log House, good thing it is such a sturdy well built cabin...

    1. I live in a brick house and am happy about that. Don't you have to always be treating logs for bugs?
