Additional Details:
This one-room log cabin was erected by Henry Sinco in 1831, and it is believed he used it as a store. During the following year Dr. Francis Regnier, twenty-five years of age and the son of a French physician, came to New Salem and bought the lot and cabin from Sinco. He lived here alone, using the cabin as a combined home and office, until August, 1834, when he married and moved to Clary's Grove with his bride, Sophia Ann Goldsmith.
