VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - An anonymous donation in southern Indiana benefitted a Vigo County park.

On Tuesday, crews spent the day at a remote property in Switz City.

While there, they took down an old cabin.

Pieces of that cabin are being donated to Fowler Park to replace a cabin that was destroyed by a fire last September.

Park officials are excited about preserving that history.

We're told tearing this particular structure down will take three days.

After that, the process to rebuild a refurbished cabin will take months.

Park officials hope to have the project wrapped up by October when Pioneer Days happen at the park.
