Zane Grey’s Cabin Becomes Public Property

_One of the most popular sites on the Rogue River is a rude one-room cabin of peeled logs and hand-split shingles.

The cabin was once owned by Zane Grey, best known for his Western novels including "Riders of the Purple Sage." But now the 32 acres and the buildings on it belong to everyone.

This month, the cabin was bought by the Trust for Public Lands and sold to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which is nominating it for the National Register of Historic places._
