Stone House

Jefferson County

Believed to date from the late 1860s, this small well-crafted dwelling apparently functioned as an early farmhouse.  The main portion includes an attic level and has a side gabled roof.

A shed roofed portion extends from the rear.  The builder used river rocks that were matched and stacked horizontally to create this unusual example of stone construction.  Quoins and lintels of rough-dressed cut sandstone provide additional interest.
