Dexter Cabin was the Leadville, Colorado home and hunting lodge of James V. Dexter, a mining investor and businessman. Although it is a cabin, the interior has been described as "surprisingly plush," "elegantly finished," and "incredibly ornate.".
It is a Colorado State Historic Site and is operated as a museum by the state under History Colorado, together with Healy House. The two are located within the Leadville Historic District, which is itself a National Historic Landmark. Dexter Cabin was moved to its present location next to Healy House.
Dexter Cabin was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.
