Inscription. Originally the site of Henry Humphries' saddle and harness shop, this simple one-room, v-notched cabin with a stone foundation and chimney was soon acquired by Isaac Potter for his own store, which operated until 1826. The house continued to be used as a residence into the early 21st century. It served as a headquarters during the U.S. Bicentennial.
 
Erected by Historic Jamestown Society.
