The Log Cabin Marks the Spot

Someone on Reddit found the location using property records:

Apparently, the Lot that Log Cabin sits on is PT LOT 1 GIBSON MOTOR CO.

Arthurdale

Since my name is Arthur, I was intrigued by the signpost pointing to (I assumed) Arthurdale. Indeed I was correct in my assumption. A little further probing and it turns out Arthurdale has quite a story behind it!

My two guesses

It's either this intersection, or it's not.

Pros: Intersecting Highways with Arthurdale in the correct direction, remnants of a driveway in the yard, Stop sign on a steep incline.

Cons: Lack of a concrete block building.
