Residents follow Eagle Scout's lead to restore Newman/Tallman Cabin

A local Eagle Scout inspired others to volunteer and preserve a piece of Parker's history on Aug. 26, leading a project to renovate the Tallman/Newlin Cabin near the Canterberry subdivision.

The cabin was built in 1866 by John Tallman, who came to Colorado from New York in 1859.

Eagle Scout Lance Markham organized the project to gain his service badge with the Scouts, and about 60 volunteers from the Parker Area Historical Society, JustServe.org and the Stonegate ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pulled weeds, painted walls and swept the floors at the cabin.

“It was just a great day,” said Catherine Traffis, vice president of the Parker Area Historical Society.
