reviewing the Federal Period—which followed
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.
