Ambrose Burton House

In 1797 Revolutionary War veteran Ambrose Burton constructed this two-story 18 x 24 foot single pen log house.

Burton's construction of the east limestone chimney on the inside, rather than the outside, is unusual for this area. 

An early addition on the west side of the house was built of mortise and tenon beams filled with wattle and daub. Burton's initials are incised in the east fireplace surround.
