AWTHS member Annette Stewart will share about her parents old log house which was located in Monroe Township. Many may not have known it was log underneath because it was covered for many years. During this talk discussion will center on log houses in the area and the problems that can arise with the early to mid-1800s logs. Discussion will also center on early settlers and families as well as their way of life.

Photos will be shown as well as family history of the Fryman’s and Niswonger families. If this is your ancestors or family genealogy line bring your photos and family tree to share as well as family stories.

If you own or have owned an old log home or cabin, come and share with your experiences; whether restoring, fixing or moving. Please bring a copy of a photo of your log home and history for display and for their AWTHS Reference Library.
