|Adam Rankin House|
This log house with clapboard siding was originally a two-story, three-bay home. The addition on what is now the home's east side (pictured at right) is an addition which was erected within ten years of the original structure. It was at that time that the log home was first covered by clapboard. There is a very good architectural write-up on the house in Antebellum Architecture of Kentucky by Clay Lancaster (Univ. of Ky. Press, 1991 e).
I've always loved this house. It seems to have plentiful natural light (look at all those windows) and I've always loved the shutters on one side. *
