This log home was built on property purchased between 1860 and 1880 by William Kegg, a prosperous land owner in Franklin and Pickaway counties. In 1915, the land and house were purchased from the Keggs by the Rouffs. In 1960, the land was sold to the Kientz Family, who donated the house to Southwest Franklin County Historical Society and the City of Grove City in 1997. The house was dismantled with the help of inmates from the Orient Correctional Institution and placed in storage for 6 years, and rebuilt in a joint effort of the SWFCHS, the Boy Scouts and the City.
