One local man’s labor of love can be found in the United States. Petersheim Log Cabins are handcrafted and built to be transported on semi-trucks. The roof and porch fold up. These cabins can be seen from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the mountains of Tennessee.

“I train horses and I build cabins,” said Henry Petersheim, an Amish man who lives on the edge of Marion County near LaRue.

He moved from Mt Victory to Marion County 15 years ago when he met and married his wife, Lydia, who grew up here. They have six children. The eldest, Miriam, and their youngest son are at home while their scholars rode horses to school. There are nine Amish church districts and about 160 families in this area.
