The Bonnifield Cabin was built by Rhodham Bonnifield and sons in the summer of 1838, in what was to become Jefferson County. Inside this cabin is where wife, Nancy Bonnifield suggested to call the newly near by town, to be named “Fairfield.”
By 1907 the Bonnifield Cabin had fallen to disrepair. A very active “Old Settlers Association” took a nostalgic interest in it. The cabin was dismantled, then reconstructed at its present location: a ten acre tract known as “Old Settlers Park.”

Support the preservation of the Bonnifield Cabin, a Fairfield National Treasure and Historical landmark located at Old Settlers Park (Waterworks Park). The Bonnifield Cabin is the oldest two story log cabin in the state of Iowa built in 1838.

Help us in preserving and rebuilding this Nationally Registered cabin by donating and, or purchasing a brick to become part of this historical event to save and rebuild the Bonnifield Cabin at the Old Settlers Association Park for years to come, giving tribute to our community, town, county and state, to share in the history. Enriching tourists, educational and school tours, along with other celebrations for decades.
