How Many U.S. Presidents Were Born In a Log Cabin?

Seven U.S. presidents were born in a log cabin.

They included Abe Lincoln, Millard Fillmore, James Buchanan, Andrew Jackson, and James Garfield.

A log cabin was the first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter.

Historically log construction has its roots in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, and the first log cabins were probably built in Northern Europe during the Bronze Age.

Traditional log cabins in North America were built from logs laid horizontally and interlocked on the ends with notches.
