Jonas Clore Log House

The Jonas Clore Log House

One of the historic homes located along East Bend Road, the Jonas Clore Log House was built around 1820. The house is a double-pen log dwelling built to two stories. The first story exhibits four bays in a window-door-door-window pattern. At each gable-end is a slope-shouldered rubblestone chimney. The owners have removed weatherboarding from the exterior walls, exposing the logs.

Five historic outbuildings contribute to the significance of the property. These include a large stock barn built of hewn timbers and a sizeable frame smokehouse with extended gable. A one-story frame building was built around 1890 for the Clore children, and later served as a residence for the grandparents.

The house was added to the National Register in 2000.
