Physical Description

A plain log house, weather boarded, with two chimneys of stone, one outside with a brick top, the other inside. The inside chimney is 14x8 feet and holds a ten foot log. There are five fireplaces with long, narrow mantels.

The rear wing of the house is five steps lower than the front. The front entrance of two steps is right from the street into the long narrow hall, which has a closed winding stairway with a landing on the second floor; it then ascends to the attic.

The walls are plastered, with partitions of wide, hand planed pine boards, rabbit joined. The doors have two crosses and six panels. The cellar under the entire house has a packed ground floor. The under girders are of walnut, full sized logs, hewn flat on two sides. All hardware has been changed, formerly there were old bar hinges and wooden locks. The house has eleven rooms.
