Log

Bobb Log House • Order A Print

Before reviewing the Federal Period—which followed Georgian—Log Style should be mentioned. York’s best example of Log Architecture was built in 1812. Log is less a "period" of architecture than it is a "style." Log houses were built from the late 1740s through the 1860s. Characteristics of this style are one and a half stories, gable roof, side doorway, notched logs, and an end chimney. The best example in York is the Barnett Bobb Log House.
