Leesburg in Loudoun County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
The owners eventually added a stone wing and a frame wing as the farm around the house grew to include corn sheds, hay barns, livery stables and a smoke house.
The house was occupied until 1978, when it was disassembled and its logs numbered, diagrammed for reassembly, and stored in Frederick, Maryland.
The house has been reconstructed at Market Station and reflects a typical log home of the region.
