A log cabin, built by Peter Pindar Pease from Brownhelm, in the spring of IS33, and located near the historic Elm, was the first edifice erected upon the tract allotted to the Oberlin colonists. l-le started a saw and grist mill, welcomed the settlers when they arrived, and pressed forward the work upon the first school building, which received the name, Oberlin l-lall.
