Jim Baker's cabin was built in 1873 among the tepees of the Shoshone Indian tribe who adopted Baker. The cabin was originally located just a few miles from where it is now at the Little Snake River Museum. Jim, born in 1818, died in 1898 and is buried nearby in the Baker Cemetery. He is reputed to have married several Indian women as it was considered rude to not accept them when they were offered as gifts to him. The Madeline Cabin, also located at the museum, belonged to his daughter Madeline Baker Adams. View the Jim Baker Biography.
