The Neill Log House is a historic log cabin in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation placed a Historic Landmark Plaque on the building in 1970.[3] In 1977, it was named a City of Pittsburgh Designated Historic Structure.[2] It is part of Schenley Park U.S. Historic District[4]

The building was constructed around 1787 by the Neill family, who owned 262 acres in what is now Schenley Park.[1] The house passed through several hands before being sold to Col.[1] James O'Hara, who left the property to his granddaughter Mary Schenley, who donated the land to the city in 1889.[1]

It currently sits preserved in Schenley Park with a fence around it (though it is open to the public periodically).

The log house is also featured on the cover of A Guidebook To Historic Western Pennsylvania by Helene Smith and George Swetnam.[5]
