LE MARS, Iowa (AP) - An old log cabin that’s been sitting on the Plymouth County Fairgrounds in Le Mars faces an uncertain future.

Fair officials say that if a restoration plan isn’t set by early next month, the cabin will be demolished.

Built around 1900 by Judge J.L. Kennedy, of Sioux City, the cabin was moved to a Girl Scout camp in Woodbury County in 1923, to another camp in Plymouth County in 1982 and to the fairgrounds in 2004.

Plymouth County Historical Museum officials are working with the fair board on a resolution. On April 1 an expert in log cabin restoration will evaluate the cabin and then report to museum and fair officials.

Officials say that if the cabin can be saved, it must be moved from the fairgrounds by June 1.
