When he returned to York in 1818, he sold the cabin and the land to a farmer named William Smith who then used it as an outbuilding. In 1879 the cabin was offered to the York Pioneer Association.
In an early act of Toronto heritage preservation, the York Pioneers dismantled the cabin and then reassembled it on the exhibition grounds as part of the celebrations marking the inauguration of the Toronto Industrial Exhibition (now the Canadian National Exhibition). In 1986, the cabin was designated as historically significant under the Ontario Heritage Act.
