This cabin, originally located near Momineetown east of Toledo, was built by Peter Navarre, Jr. during his father's later days.  In 1922, it was moved to Navarre Park in East Toledo by the Peter Navarre Chapter, United States Daughters of 1812.  In 1957, the cabin was re-erected on this site by the Peter Navarre Memorial Association in cooperation with the Toledo Zoological Society and the Anthony Wayne Parkway Board.
