Above is a painting which was done of a cabin which was built by Ephriam Boardman. This was the second home known to have been built by a white settler in what is now Thorp, Clark Co., WI. In the summer and fall of 1872, J. S. Boardman built a log shanty on the southwest quarter of Section 30, Withee Township (20, Range 3 West), and in October of that year his brother, Ephriam, and his family lived with them for three weeks until he got his shanty built. Ephriam's house was built of logs on the site where the old elementary school stands in the city of Thorp.
