January 16, 2001 - Some Boy Scouts are trying to save a piece of scouting history in the Poconos.
Boy Scouts young and old got to work Sunday on an old cabin near Hawley.
"We're pretty much de-chinking now, which means taking the stuff out from between the logs," explained Boy Scout Giancarlo Iona.
This is not just any cabin. It is the Daniel Beard cabin, named after one of the original founders of the Boy Scouts.
Lackawaxen Twp. — Woodloch Pines Resort has donated a historic cabin on their property to the Boys Scouts of America. The log cabin was used by one of the Scouts’ founders in the first half of the 20th Century.
The Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA) Council of the Boy Scouts of America has plans to move it to the Goose Pond Boy Scout Reservation about 12 or 15 miles away, in Paupack Township.
The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, Boy Scouts of America has begun the process of relocating and restoring an important piece of Scouting’s history.
This cabin, the last remaining part of the Dan Beard Outdoor School, a camp run by Daniel Carter Beard in Lackawaxen Township, Pike County, PA is being disassembled and moved 12 miles to Goose Pond Scout Reservation. This process is not a small undertaking, but by relocating and keeping this 1926 Kiva style log cabin in Upstate Pennsylvania we are not only preserving its history but are also honoring a beloved founder of the BSA, Dan Beard himself.
These pages will explain the history of the cabin and detail the restoration process. You will also be able to follow the project through our collection of pictures and images.
This project is being made possible with help from the many volunteers who are giving their time and labor freely. It cannot be completed, however, without the contributions and generosity of supporters like you.
