The Jardine cabin was built by James Jardine (sometimes spelled "Jordan") who migrated to Texas from Ireland in 1826 and settled in Jose Vehlein's Colony. The cabin, one of the oldest extant log structures in Texas, is a typical single pen, story-and-a-half hand hewn log cabin with front and back porches and mud cat chimney.

Moved from Walker to Montgomery County in 1976 and restored by B. Carroll and Mae Tharp.
