See up close what life was like "back in the day" at William Arnold Log House. One of the first homes in Williamstown, the house belonged to a lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. The refurbished two-story cabin made from brick and wood shares the town's history through antique furniture, cutlery, and other things on display, such as a large spinning wheel, and old stereoscope, and a collection of books and photographs from the period. A volunteer from Grant County Historical Society is always on site providing answers to any questions you might have about the cabin or the period. Note that this attraction is open for visitors only on Fridays or by appointment.

We discovered this while planning a trip to the Ark Encounter and being an ancestor of the first Arnold that came here from England along with Roger Williams, it was a blessing to visit. A part of our family history I didn’t know about. Thank you all for restoring this and maintaining it. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
On a rainy day after visiting the Ark, the kids and I were searching for something fun to do when we stumbled onto the William Arnold Log House. We figured it was worth checking out, and we were not disappointed. Such a cool piece of history, excellently preserved, and the woman working there was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend popping in if you're in the area. Definitely worth a visit!
