The Kauffman Cabin


kauffman Cabin Exterior, Republic, WA Built in the early months of the gold rush in 1896, Harry Kauffman’s cabin was constructed in the Republic section of Eureka camp, a short distance from its present location. Crafted from hand squared logs and hand split shingles, the solid structure of Republic’s first cabin survived the challenges of a mining town and the “creative” demands of several owners. Kauffman’s activities as a miner and real estate developer after his successful years in Republic are unknown.
