Basically an original one-room frontier cabin that has been added onto over the years. It sits on a 100 acre farm that is partly wooded. The house is now two stories and has 3 bedrooms. It had power but never any running water. There was originally 6 buildings on the site: main house, garage, coal bunker, shed, outhouse, and barn. All of these structures were made of fine wormy chestnut.

    This farm was settled before the turn of the century by one of Braxton County's notable families. This farm was active up untill about 1982 when it was abandoned and the power cut off. Up untill then it served as a weekend getaway.

     Future Plans
    Most of the out-building and garages/barns have been scrapped for their wood. The main house will never be demolished (due to a legal provision in the families will).
