      The Stauffer Log House is a simple log house built circa 1815. The symmetrical rectangular plan was created with square logs and chinking. The upper storey of the house is believed to have been added circa 1845, as the horizontal log construction does not extend into the gable ends. The facade has a small central gable with a Carpenter's Gothic style window. The roofline has a partial frieze and overall the house retains its typical simplistic ornamentation. Original 12 over 12 windows remain in the west, north and south elevations.
