The Seidel House, better known at Starhill Farms as the Cabin on the Hill, was built in Austin County in 1849 for the Seidel Family. The cabin was originally a dogtrot-style house with two log cabins connected with a breezeway. In 1939, 90 years later, the log cabin was closed around the logs to expand the home. During that time, the family placed a time capsule in the walls of the house to be discovered when the cabin was disassembled around 1992. That time capsule is framed and preserved and currently sits on the mantle in the cabin. In 1998, one of the two cabins that made up the original Seidel House was relocated to the secluded hilltop spot on Starhill Farms overlooking Mill Creek and became known as Cabin on the Hill. It was then fully renovated for people to enjoy, with custom fixtures, reclaimed wood, stone improvements, as well as one-of-a-kind antiques.
