America's first collector of historical records, Deborah Norris Logan (1761-1839), spent her adult years here. She lived through the formative years of the nation and chronicled provincial and early national history. Deborah saved, transcribed, and organized documents about the period and wrote a memoir about her husband George Logan; she kept a personal diary from 1811-1839 that provides valuable insight into the period. The site also tells the story of Dinah, a freed African servant, who saved the house from being burnt down by British soldiers during the Revolution.
