Burk's Log Cabin
Burk’s Log Cabin

It is the only authentic log cabin in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana.  It must be one of the oldest in Louisiana.  It is Burk’s House, a log cabin with a mud-daub chimney built in 1883.

Today, it is well preserved for anyone to see, in Merryville, Louisiana (west of DeRidder).

The cabin was built by Andrew Jackson Burks and Buck Burks, south of Merryville on Hwy. 389 (Bancroft Highway).  Four generations were raised in the cabin.

The cabin was donated to the Merryville Historical Society in 1986 by Mr. and Mrs. Ruel Franks

and Jack and Edith Franks.  It was moved to Merryville and then in September 1987 was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The cabin has deteriorated over the years, so the Merryville Museum is trying to raise funds to restore it.

There is more information about the cabin on the Merryville Museum’s website:

    1. I trusted Lexington with my credit service and they failed woefully, i was trying to fix my credit in other to apply for a mortgage loan , and they made my score even worse than it was . Then my colleague at work referred me to CREDITFIXINC@OUTLOOK.COM . He helped me  expunge negative collections  , late charge offs and late payment record i had, and  this subsequently increased my credit score from 611 to 792.I felt blessed after i had my mortgage approved.Reach out to the CREDIT EXPERT if you need credit repair service .Write him via

  1. All us 389er’s who remember Uncle Webb living in the cabin know there was a kitchen off the back porch, separate from the house. They were built like this in order for the house not to be heated up in the summer and to prevent possible house fires. I remember he had a pie safe sitting on the back porch to the left of the door and the hand pump was at the opposite end of the porch. If you were sitting at the table in the kitchen, there was a window, no glass, on the north side of the kitchen with a shutter which could be lowered in the winter. There was a main room with the mud daub chimney and an additional room to the right for a bedroom. Uncle Webb had his bed in the living room. There was a small stair case in the left corner of the front door which led to the attic. I remember one time Granny Lorene Quave was checking the bed in the bedroom and found a chicken snake under the mattress. There was a picket fence around the house.

  6. Hacking into mobile phones is like a walk in the park, for the guru i contacted. All he needs is target’s phone number to break into any phone and gain total control over it without touching the target remotely and this is without traces on target’s phone, including listening to recordings of phone conversations, reading text messages even accessing passwords and all social media accounts. He is really good at what he does as i experienced working with him, he also hacks mails, databases, websites, social media to name a few…contact him via mail at NERDORACLE247@GMAIL.COM

  7. I had credit scores of 568(transunion) 574(Equifax), I applied for a surgery loan a while ago which was not approved because my score was low.

I saw some wonderful recommendations of this credit repair expert: CLEVER HACKER ,He raised my scores to 787 thought that was enough but he also removed my repo and negatives. you can also contact him if you need such services,

  9. Get your credit cleaned with the help of a reliable hacker. He’s tested and trusted. I had a very low credit score (around 520) and it was ruining my life. I needed help. I was very depressed because of it and had been trying to repair it but It just seems nothing was capable of getting my score raised quickly. I needed something done fast. I had read a lot of good things about this hacker online which gave me a go ahead to try him out. I almost gave up my search for a real hacker because I kept meeting fake hackers who are always after the money, I’ve been conned by them. Hackinvade  is not about the money but about attaining a good reputation at always satisfying his customers. This is my way of showing appreciation for a job well done on my credit report.
