With many of the remaining seventeenth-century homes held in 'public' hands, living in this primitive home has been a rare opportunity. After fifteen years we can still walk into a room and find something we never noticed before. From original details, to appreciating the settlers' challenges in gathering and putting to use their limited resources.



This web site was formed to help the many people who have over the years, written, called and visited our home. Some simply curious; others in search of long-ago ancestors.     


UPDATE:  This website was created by Larry Schneider about 2009, while living in the house.   He and his wife Deborah Cosanti sold the house  to a private party on December 12, 2011 and this website is now maintained by a Weaver who had the opportunity to visit the house while Larry and Deborah owned it.  A number of Weavers discovered the house through this site and had an opportunity to visit it before the sale.

Following their discovery of the house, descendants of the immigrant Clement Weaver (grandfather of the Clement Weaver for whom the house is named)  joined to  form a Descendants of Clement Weaver site on   Others researching their Weaver roots  have found us and we have grown to about 50 members.  With the closing of, we can now be found at    We continue our research on the new site, adding to the many photos and stories that have been transferred from
