This little log cabin sits in the woods off Bohemian Road near School Lake. It was constructed by Francis Kraitz around 1856. He came to the North Unity area to escape the typhoid epidemic sweeping through Chicago. The cabin was originally built further south near St. Joseph Catholic Church. In 1945 John Kraitz (3rd generation) moved the house to a site beside School Lake and just a few years later, moved it across the road to its current location. The park service took ownership of the cabin in 2013. I had a few additions added on to it over the years including green siding. Recently it has been restored to its original construction. I am not sure what the plans are for the future of the cabin but it sure looks peaceful surrounded by the northern Michigan forest.
