It's the real thing! An ancient homestead built of sturdy logs in Chester county, Pennsylvania over 250 years ago. The land had been deeded by Quaker patriarch George Harlan to his son Joshua "in consideration of natural affection and fatherly love."

Now, it's on the National Register of Historic Places and has been featured on local house tours. There are five serene acres on a quiet road. The back yard is very private. A sitting porch with rustic rockers overlooks the water garden with a relaxing fountain and the stone 1814 spring house with gilded weathervane.

Random width floors, a "cooking" fireplace with iron utensils, queen canopy beds, old textiles, early Pennsylvania furniture and woodburning fireplaces all take you back in time.

The Harlan Log House is so close to the significant places to visit - just three miles from Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, and the Brandywine River Museum. Harlan descendants still return here to their origins; we welcome you too.
