This log cabin was originally built, perhaps in 1848, on S. M. Swenson's plan-
tation, "Govalle," now a part of the city of Austin. Govalle in Swedish means
"good grazing-ground." The cabin was the home of his kinsfolk, the Gustaf Palm
family, who came from Sweden in 1848. For years it was the social center of the
early Swedish pioneers. Later it was moved to Fourteenth and San Jacinto streets
in Austin and currently stands as a permanent memorial in the Luther League Park
in Round Rock as one of the sturdiest examples of pioneer homes.
