Isaac Martin Log Cabin and Barn

Isaac Martin (#7) was probably the builder of this house and barn, sometime in the 1840's. Later blacksmith John Ford owned it and worked just up the road in a shop at Caleb Wickersham's (#8).
Several years ago, the owners discovered that the siding on their home concealed the original oak logs, V-notched and chinked with lime mortar. Handwrought nails were used in the wide floor boards and in the battened doors throughout the house. An enclosed stairway curves beside the chimney to all floors. The house has recently been restored and enlarged.
