Civil War veteran, Charles Kikendall showed up on the Puget Sound scene in 1875, coming from the parched plains of Kansas, by way of San Francisco. Having left a homestead in the middle west, Kikendall was forced to buy land from the government. His .purchase: 120 acres of heavily timbered Pilchuck Riv- er land between Snohomish and Machias for $1.25 per acre. The hard-working pioneer built this marvelous cabin, using the finest and straightest logs available. Some people say the cabin survives in such good shape today because of the overhanging porches which protected the main building from the weather--and because of the meticulous care and upkeep furnished by the builder and his descendants. Before his death in 1886, Kikendall had cleared 11 acres for crops and planted the whole bench above the Pilchuck bottomland to fruit trees. In 1894, Kikendall's youngest child, Lily, married William Maddox and moved into the cabin. The Maddox family lived there until 1923. Three daughters were born in the cabin: Stella (Mrs. Wayne Huffman of Snohomish); Harriett (Mrs. Harriett Solvang of Seattle); and Anna (Anna Machmeler of Snohomish). Maddox died in 1921. In 1923, the cabin, now expanded and provided with the beautiful stone fireplaces seen in the picture, was sold to Arthur Fralick. Since that time it's changed hands a couple of times. The present owners, wishing to build a new home, have offered the historic cabin to the Pioneer Girls and Boys Association of Snohomish. Association Presi- dent Earle "Dusty" Rhoades is getting estimates on the cost of moving it to another site, either in one piece or knocked down. If the price isn't too high, the old Kikendall Cabin will be restored in a place of prominence--the Snohomish Memorial Cemetery. "It would be a shame to see it torn down or burned," Rhoades remarked. "That's what's going to happen to it if we can't get it moved." QUIT SCRUBBING and ( PAINTING OLD .
