Cedar Bluff in Cherokee County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Indian Village of Costa
The log building was originally built as a blacksmith shop c. 1832 by G.J. Williamson an early settler. It contains many tools of that period and is believed to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest structure in the county still in use.
The house is the third on this site, the first a log structure, the second an American Gothic type structure, and the present a modified replica of a Virginia Farm house of the 1600's.
