This log cabin in the midst of the city is one of the oldest houses. Named for original owner Samuel Goodwin, the home is open for free tours every third Sunday. Goodwin came to the area from South Carolina in 1837 and built the house along the Echota Indian Trail on a 600-acre homestead. The family cemetery, home to five generations of Goodwins, is located nearby amid sprawling magnolias. Lynda Martin, the great-great-great-great granddaughter of Goodwin, currently lives in the house and leads the monthly tours.
