Physical Description

This house is a typical farm house. Half of it is of log construction; the south half is frame. It has an "L" shape porch and portico. The rooms are babited board partitions. Remodeling and additions were built the same way. It originally had a large fireplace in the center of the old part of the house. But this was torn out and a flue built when the house was remodeled. The stairway was also changed and was placed in the center of the house.
