Day Log Cabin at the Green

The Day Log House was originally constructed around 1860. The Day family purchased the site in 1912 and continuously preserved its history.

Amid developed properties in the south part of the County stands Green Hills of Platte Wildlife Preserve. The gently sloping hills encompass nature trails, wetlands and views of wildlife in their natural habitat.  Platte County Parks & Recreation has also restored several acres of natural prairie grass which blooms brilliantly in the spring and fall.

Wildlife is abundant at the Preserve. Including raccoons, opossums, rabbits, squirrels, deer, fox and many different species of birds.


Featured on the property is a historic log cabin. Historical assessments trace its construction back to the mid 1800’s. The cabin is one of the oldest structures still standing in Platte County from the earliest days of settlement after the opening of the Platte Purchase territory in 1836.

The Day Log Cabin is available for children’s events, small groups, book clubs and tours.
