Patterson Farm (Thomas Logan Farm)
The quintessential central Pennsylvania farm, this combination of a five-bay stone house and a frame bank barn has seen little alteration since the nineteenth century. The house was constructed in two stages. The three bays at the eastern end were built in 1798 of colorful, randomly set limestone with keystoned voussoirs and corner quoins. Two bays were added c. 1820 to the stone portion, resulting in the standard five-bay facade. Frame additions at the rear expanded the size of the house, and a small portico now shelters the central entrance on the facade. The barn has vertical siding above the stone foundation and a forebay facing the house. The last Confederate bivouac on northern soil was held here in 1864.
