This log house was built in 1845 for Big John and Ann Thomson. It was constructed from trees that were felled on the property with a small side addition added in later years. The original stone fireplace is the focal point of the main floor living room/kitchen with several small bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
Out back you may notice a small white building: this was the hard work of students from the Earth Keepers program at a local high school in the mid 1980’s. Constructed with a concrete floor, walls of straw bales and metal shingles on the roof, its ceiling rafters are cut from wood harvested on the Crieff Hills property. Currently it is used for large item storage.
