Jan Conkrite gives visitors a look back in time as they tour the Old Settlers Memorial Cabin on Lincoln Statue Drive in Dixon. The cabin was opened for tours Saturday by the Lee County Historical Society for the first time in many years. The cabin, built in 1894, is in serious need of upkeep, most notably roof repairs. The society is hoping to raise funds through donations and tours.
