This "Hall and Parlor" style house has a kitchen (Hall) and a living room (Parlor) on the first floor and two bedrooms upstairs. There are two angled fireplaces in the center-of the front wall similar to "Penn Plan" houses. It is constructed of sawn planks separated by dowels which are dovetailed at the four corners and mortised at two center posts. The house is listed in the Historic American Building Survey in the Library of Congress. The house originally was located on West Chester Pike, deconstructed, put into storage, re-assembled and opened to the public in 1999.
