Other log houses, or houses that incorporate early log elements within their later frame form, include the one-room Croy House. The log house, seen on the bottom, dates from the antebellum period and is one of the smallest houses surveyed in the county. On the opposite screen, the Martin-Richardson House, on the east corner of Wharton and Roanoke streets, is a two-story frame house dating from the third quarter of the nineteenth century. It incorporates an earlier, log, two-room house, now invisible from the exterior.
