Carroll log cabin to be restaurant in Bulgaria NORTHWEST Taneytown * Union Bridge * New Windsor

August 03, 1993

A Washington entrepreneur plans to ship a 140-year-old log cabin from New Windsor to Sofia to set up what he claims will be the first American-style restaurant in the Bulgarian capital.

The two-story, 20-by-24-foot log farm house, now in storage in a garage, will house The Log Cabin Restaurant, featuring such Maryland dishes as soft-shell crabs and roast turkey.

Cuisine from Virginia and North Carolina will also be served in the restaurant, which will be decorated with early American furniture, memorabilia and photographs.

Entrepreneur Philip H. Bay "wanted [the restaurant] to be from Maryland, and he wanted it to be authentic," said his spokeswoman, Alyson Chadwick.

His company, Continental Information Group Inc., which runs an office in Bulgaria, hopes to attract U.S. troops stationed in Macedonia, about two hours away from Sofia, Ms. Chadwick said.

The log cabin is getting a new roof, window frames and a foundation, but the three-bedroom house has nearly all its original floorboards and hewn logs intact and has had no insect damage, she said.
