Cabin of Cherokee naturalist Spring Frog (b. 1754) in the Elise Chapin Wildlife Sanctuary (now Audubon Acres). Cabin may have been built as early as ca. 1748; it was restored in 1945 and then changed extensively in 1972. Some sources suggest Spring Frog came to the Chattanooga area in 1776 and built the cabin then. Spring Frog was also known as Tooan Tuh (or Tooantuh) and died at Briartown, Indian Territory.
