The Walker-Ewing-Glass Log House, located on Pinkerton Run Road, is the 1780s log house that gives Settler's Cabin Park its name.

Settler's Cabin Park is a 1,610-acre (7 km2) county park in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is a part of the county's 12,000 acre (49 km²) network of nine distinct parks.

It is sited 15 miles (24 km) west of downtown Pittsburgh in Collier, North Fayette, and Robinson Townships. Archaeologists from Carnegie Museum of Natural History helped identify the 1780s log house that gives the park its name. The themes of the 11 picnic groves are Indian names: Algonquin, Seneca, Apache, Tomahawk, etc.
