The Cypress Log Cabin overlooks Lake Michigan on Lake Front Drive in the town of Beverly Shores. Architect Murray D. Heatherington designed this building to demonstrate the unique qualities and many uses of cypress. At the fair, the cabin presented a mountain lodge atmosphere with fences, arbors, and bridges decorated with cypress knees, carved to suggest animal heads, reptiles, and fantasy creatures. None of these details were replicated when the house was moved from Chicago to Beverly Shores after the world's fair.
