This early nineteenth century log house built in Logan County, KY is a classic example of traditional Kentucky architecture.
The dog-trot floor plan and poplar, oak, and walnut construction are typical of the architecture of the region. Reproduction
furniture, equipment, tools and clothing inside the Felts House accurately represent an upper income South Central Kentucky
family home of 1815.
