Cumberland Furnace in Dickson County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
The Thompson House is a double pen log cabin. The basic log construction probably predates the Civil War.
In the 20th century a wraparound porch, rear framed extension weatherboard and central shed dormer were added. All but the dormer were removed back to the original log cabin. This house is a fair example of folk architecture.
