No, it burned down sometime after 1956, but was replaced with a model of the cabin.

As far as I know this was the only photo made when in its early time and that to advertise McKinney, Texas as a historical site. A number of different post cads sold or were given out to school children. The school classes had to tell about McKinney on paper.
