Upper St. Clair 1830 Log House

Originally one of several log houses built on the Gilfillan Farm around 1830, the Fulton Log House is the last standing log home from that era and was built to house farm workers. Since it's construction, the log home has changed ownership several times and is now owned by the Upper St. Clair Township. Several organizations have worked together to restore the log home and use it as a teaching classroom and a glimpse of the way of life in those days.
