Pennsylvania Avenue Log House

By chris - Posted on 28 October 2008


       This full two story log building is one of three remaining in the Borough of Emmaus. It has dovetail notching on the corners—a relatively unusual feature on remaining Lehigh County log buildings. Little information is available regarding its builder and history, but is claimed to date from the late eighteenth century although it may actually have been built in the early nineteenth century. The structure is now converted into an apartment building. This is a drive-by site.

       Access: 1281 Pennsylvania Avenue, Emmaus, PA. From the previous building continue ahead on Powder Valley Road to the junction with Routes 29/100. Turn right and continue 4.0 miles into Emmaus to 10th St. Turn right and continue 0.1 mile to Pennsylvania Ave. Turn right and proceed 0.3 mile to the Pennsylvania Avenue Log House on your right (only the logs on the front first floor are exposed).
