The Rooks Log Cabin

1096 Wyandotte Rd.

This cabin was the home of the Garrett Miller family, and was originally located near Cambridge

and Cardigan. It was moved to its current location on Wyandotte Road and was the clubhouse of

the Brotherhood of Rooks, a high school fraternity from its inception in 1915 until such organizations

were banned in Ohio in 1960. The top photo shows the exterior of the cabin. The middle

photo shows the interior of the cabin with two early high school members. The group later

sold shares in order to raise money for a fraternity house, which was located at 1347 Elmwood Avenue.
