Thomas Sleight Cabin
The Thomas Sleight Cabin was built
in the fall of 1863 by Thomas Sleight and
Charles Atkins, who with their wives,
Marianne and Ann, occupied it together during the
first winter of the settlement of Paris, Idaho.
It was first finished with a dirt floor and a sod roof. The
logs were stripped of bark and notched but not cut or
otherwise shaped and were chinked with mud
to keep out the wind. The windows and door
frames were set in with wooden pegs. It was
ready for occupancy before the snow fell.
