Where is the Log Raising held?
The event is held in a climate controlled building on the Honest Abe Log Homes National Headquarters and its accompanying manufacturing complex on Hwy. 52, 10 miles west of Celina and approximately 25 miles east of Lafayette in the community of Moss, Tenn. Get detailed directions here.
A special treat of the Log Raising is the chance to attend A Southern Marketplace Barn Sale at Acres of Grace Farm and to tour the home of April and Nick Patterson, co-owners of Honest Abe, whose new home is the first to be constructed of Honest Abe’s 10” Round Log, a new offering introduced in 2017. Additionally, the Hedges Home, a new square log home near the Acres of Grace Farms will be open to registered log raising guests. See more about this home by clicking here.
