Though nothing official has been ironed out, it is looking more likely that the log cabin on Third Street will be preserved.
Boyle Judge-Executive Tony Wilder said during Tuesday's Fiscal Court meeting a new quote of $9,500 to catalog and disassemble the cabin has been received. A previous bid put the cost of dismantling the cabin at $19,000.
"We're on track in our mission to preserve it," Wilder said. "I'd say we'll get this rolling in the next couple of weeks. I hope we have the city on board at that price. If not, we'll do it ourselves."
So far, Danville City Commission has declined to commit any money toward saving the cabin.
Though the date of the cabin remains uncertain, many believe it could be one of Danville's first structures, built sometime prior to 1780.
