I am standing inside the one room whose four walls are the 1800 cabin. The front porch is through the door on the left.
The original Henry Jackson fireplace that he built inside the cabin.Side view of fireplace.
I’m standing in the opposite corner of the room shooting towards the other corner.
The door out to the front porch would have been the original doorway to the cabin.
Notice the ceiling with its large beams and boards.Doug had opened a door to a crawl space so we could see the chestnut logs under the floor of the cabin portion of the house.
Note that they only planed one side of the logs to support the floor boards.
