This landmark farmhouse and barn were recently exposed after a clear-cut on the old River Road. My father brought them to my attention after traveling to Eastman to a baseball game recently.
It’s a typical unadorned example of one of the most common forms of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but a very nice home for its time.
I’ve observed over the years that when properties are cleared, remaining abandoned structures are often quickly demolished to make way for changing land uses.
The log barn appears to be a corn crib or other storage structure. It is already collapsing but I’m honored to be able to document it.
