Hummel House

-A A +A
1815, before 1830. 469–471 Front St.
  • (William E. Fischer, Jr.)

Although Pennsylvania German log houses were invariably weatherboarded for durability at a later date, it is interesting to see the log construction here, exposed during the course of renovations in 1989. The addition in brick dates from shortly after the construction of the house, and helps account for the common German double-door entrance.
