Dr Georgina Deweese and her WGAU Students Begin the Dating of the Log Building

F-R  Dr. Georgina Deweese, a student, and Peggy Allgood, President of Cave Spring Historical Society getting ready to harvest core samples for dating.
Numbered back and front to replace the larger portion after dating.

Tedious work to get good core samples.

Bet the early builders would marvel at a reciprocating saw!

That may not just be glare.  Perhaps the "old folks" are watching in these pictures.

Pieces are wrapped and protected for transport and study.

Logs inside the hall on South side of log structure.

Logs beside the fireplace in middle hallway at stairs to second floor .

Wide tongue and groove paneling in main room of 1st floor. 
 We most sincerely thank Dr. Deweese for her interest, work in funding this project, and her kindness for helping our town to determine the origin of this unbelievably well preserved early structure thus opening up long forgotten history for posterity!
