from the National Register nomination:
William Newland first bought land in this area of the county in 1823 and possibly built the log house soon after. According to oral tradition the house was built in the late 1790s and, of course, it is possible that the structure or a part of it existed on the land when Newland bought it. The house passed to John McMichael, William Newland's stepson, after Newland died in 1857. In 1896 J.L. Shallcross, prominent resident of Anchorage, bought the house and refurbished it as a wedding gift for his son, Harry Shallcross. There were several owners after that time.
