Long-lost Diamond Ring Found In Old Log Cabin Being Moved

LISBON, N.Y. (AP) – A diamond ring lost inside a 19th-century log cabin in northern New York about 30 years ago has been found by preservationists who are dismantling the structure so it can be moved to another location.

The Watertown Daily Times reports Beverly Parmeter says her son dropped her ring between the between the wallboard and floorboard in the log cabin located in the St. Lawrence County town of Lisbon, on the Canadian border.

Parmeter says she searched for the ring but never did find it by the time they moved out in 1989.

The wife of a museum board member found the ring this week while sifting through a bucket of construction debris.
