Jobs Temple

This log structure was constructed in the 1860’s, having begun prior to the Civil War and completed afterwards. The years had taken a toll on the main logs/beams at the top of the walls supporting the roof structure. The uphill wall was exhibiting damage due to the condition of the beam at the top of the wall, allowing the wall to push out from thrust on the deteriorated beam. The structure was originally constructed of local poplar trees and clay chinking. A replacement log was hand hewn to the required size for the beam on the uphill side. Epoxy repairs were made to the beam on the downhill side. A team of horses brought the log to the site.
