The Historical Society of Federal Way is leading a celebration of the remodeled Denny Cabin, located at the West Hylebos Wetlands Park on South 348th Street, just west of Pacific Highway South.

The cabin, measuring 21 square feet and two stories, was built in 1889 for Seattle pioneer David Denny. The cabin was Denny's real estate office and was located west of what is now the Seattle Center. The two-story log cabin was moved from Seattle to Federal Way in 1966 as a promotional attraction. After being located at the original Federal Shopping Way at Pacific Highway South and South 312th Street, the cabin was moved to its currently location in 1992.
