Butterworth Cottage (c. 1820)

Butterworth is one of only two dog-trot houses known to have survived within the current city limits. It was constructed in the 1820s. Oral tradition says that the house had once been located downtown and had been moved to its present location around 1900. The house was constructed as two 16-foot-by-16-foot log rooms with a breezeway between them.
