The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, Boy Scouts of America has begun the process of relocating and restoring an important piece of Scouting’s history, The Dan Beard Cabin.

This cabin, the last remaining part of the Dan Beard Outdoor School, a camp run by Daniel Carter Beard, is being disassembled and moved 12 miles to Goose Pond Scout Reservation.  This process is not a small undertaking, but by relocating and keeping this 1926 Kiva style log cabin in upstate Pennsylvania we are not only preserving its history but are also honoring a beloved founder of the BSA, Dan Beard himself.

The building will be a multi-functional space with no one proposed use precluding the others. We believe that these uses are compatible with the cabin’s original uses by Daniel Carter Beard when it served as his camp headquarters building and will serve the Boy Scout program at Goose Pond Scout Reservation well.

The cabin will be located on a site between the Capouse campsite and the COPE (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) course, on the lake side of the camp road. The cabin will be used as the headquarters of the "Pathways" Program for brand new Scouts at summer camp, Troop winter camping, Leadership Development Training Programs and events, meetings, and other special events such as Eagle Scout Ceremonies and Boards of Review. The cabin will include a small museum/interpretative area pertaining to Daniel Carter Beard and the History of the Cabin.

The construction will occur in three phases for funding purposes but may be constructed in a single phase if sufficient funds are secured. The construction is further subdivided into seven stages. The committee has engaged an experienced log cabin builder to estimate the costs of the reconstruction, which is estimated at a total of $207,250. It is anticipated that some of the work will be completed with volunteer labor, borrowed equipment and donated materials, which will reduce this cost. The first phase of the reconstruction may be completed for an estimated cost of $143,550.

Sounds like a good plan, and I will get back to you about the donation, but the big question of course is... Why does it have to be moved? That is not explained in the introduction.
