Henry Briden came to Texas from his native Germany in 1845 and served for two years as a Texas Ranger. In 1849, he and his wife, Lucinda Sevier, became first permanent white settlers in what is now Johnson County, when they built this cabin on the east bank of Nolan's River. The one-room log structure was later used as a barn when Briden erected a larger home nearby. In 1974, it was restored and moved to this site.
