Cabin Season Has Arrived!
The Historic West Hylebos Wetlands Park Cabins will be open to the public on the second Saturday of each month through October. The open dates will be
May 13; June 10; July 8; August 12; September 9; October 14.
The two Historic Cabins represent different styles of 'log cabin architecture.' The David Denny Cabin was built by one of Seattle's earliest settlers as a
real estate office in 1889. The John Barker Cabin, originally located on 312th Street at about 8th Avenue, was built by one of Federal Way's earliest settlers.
It is the oldest building in Greater Federal Way and has a number of period furnishings and artifacts.
