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. This website is now maintained by Frieda Weaver Gockel, 9th great-granddaughter of immigrant Clement Weaver, grandfather of the Clement Weaver who owned the home.
If you're a Weaver descendant who wishes to learn more about your family, you can join other descendants at Family Crossings.com. Formerly we were located at myfamily.com. To receive an invitation to join, contact one of the administrators: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
