Allen House

The Allen House, a log home occupied by John and Rachel Allen's familiy in the late 1700s. Allen built the house for his family around 1780 near Snow Camp, North Carolina, in Alamance County. Rachel Allen was a midwife. The family occupied the house until the twentieth century. The log house, with no windows and a partial second floor, was characteristic of the types of houses lived in by people who owned small farms. In 1967 the house was donated to the state and was moved to Alamance Battleground.
