Dogtrot Cabin

The Waldron, Crudup, and Wade families gathered in front of the family homeplace in the early 1900s, which was located in Fayetteville at the present-day site of Harp’s Food Store on Garland Avenue. The cabin is a fine example of the “dogtrot” style of architecture—a house with two rooms separated by an open breezeway. The cabin style takes its name from the breeze-catching quality of the hallway, which attracted canine--and human--inhabitants of the house looking to escape the summer heat.
