William Riley Woolly and his family migrated from Waynesboro, Tennessee in 1851, settling on land that came to be known as Woolly Hollow in Faulkner County, Arkansas.  In 1882, a son, Martin Alfred Woolly, built a one room log home on land that he had homesteaded in 1859.  Constructed of logs more than a foot thick and eighteen feet long, the cabin was originally located less than a mile southwest of the park.  In 1975, it was moved to its present site and restored.
