The Elijah Cutler Behunin Cabin was built to house Elijah Cutler Behunin's family in 1883-84 in what is now Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. The Behunins lived there for only a year, leaving for Fruita after a flood threatened the house and its fields. The one story sandstone structure measures 13 feet (4.0 m) by 16.5 feet (5.0 m), with a single room. The walls are sandstone covered with a plaster-cement wash. The roof structure is wood, covered with wood sheathing and bentonite clay. The cabin was renovated in the 1960s by the National Park Service and represents the most intact example of a settler cabin in Capitol Reef National Park.
