The Cypress Manufacturers's Association of Florida sponsored the Cypress Log Cabin at the Chicago World’s Fair. After the fair, the log home was sold to a couple in St. Joseph, Michigan, but was moved to Beverly Shores, Indiana, where it became a display home for the Barlett Real Estate Company's development.

Restoration efforts[edit]

Restoration efforts on the Cyprus Log Cabin were started in 1997. The home is now fully restored and occupied by long-term renters who obtained a 30 year lease from the park service in exchange for restoration & maintenance of the home.
