Professor Pearce L. Elkins was awarded a $75 prize for his forestry presentation and proposed building a log cabin with the money. Built during the 1934-35 school year by the Future Farmers of America (FFA) students, the Milton Log Cabin is the only remaining FFA-constructed log cabin still in use today in the United States. The cabin was a hands-on project that involved the entire community. Alpharetta merchants contributed needed supplies to help complete the project while the students cut and hauled donated pine trees to the cabin site. The foundation was laid using rocks provided by farmers and cement supplied by local merchants. Hand-hewn notched log construction with cement chinking characterizes the one-room, one-floor cabin with a loft. Split log benches border all the walls. A massive rock fireplace with a stacked stone chimney is the focal point of the cabin and is used for warmth as well as for cooking. The cabin was originally an FFA clubhouse.
