Britten Sanders Home in Southern Pines #northcarolinapioneers

Britten Sanders Home in Southern Pines

Britten Sanders HouseAlthough there are many log cabins in North Carolina, most of those from the colonial period have disappeared. The Britten Sanders log cabin in Southern Pines has survived. The round logs have been somewhat squared-off. The great chimney is of stone. The roof extends far out on the chimney side to protect clay mortar in the chimney from rain. The clay mortar as well as the clay chinking between the logs has now been replaced with cement for permanence. In the restored chimney it may be observed how the cement does not extend flush to the outside surface. Instead, it is kept deep within the stones in imitation of clay mortar which has partially washed away. Source: Colonial Homes in North Carolina by John V. Allcott.
