Yates Tavern from North
Yates Tavern from North
Many primitive features; stone basement shows floor construction above, of carefully selected joists in form of unhewn poles; construction of trimmer arch unusual; stone hearth supported on pole which rests in forked poles driven into earth; first floor divided into one large room and one narrow one, with sheathed-in stair projecting into latter but reached from former; all finish is sheathing, with open timbered ceiling; curious overhang at second-floor line caused by raising of roof at eaves. Originally the slope much steeper. (Later study of the roof and overhang resulted in the conclusion that its conformation was the original stylistic intent, rather than a later modification of the roof structure)
