For many years the cabin stood alone and abandoned, even though it was along a major highway. Parks and Rec director Fred Hayes spearheaded the cabin's revival, but died before the project was completed in late 2018.

Butch Cassidy was raised by Mormon pioneer parents on a ranch southwest of Circleville, and lived in this cabin as a teenager from 1880 to around 1884, when he left to become an outlaw. From the highway the cabin looks battered and abandoned, but it's actually been furnished and sealed with plexiglass windows. You can peer inside and read many informative signs.
