Hessian Hut

Re-Logging Roof, Hessian Hut -- Dykman House, NY. NY

The Hessian Hut is a recreation, built in 1915, based on the work of the amateur archaeologist Reginald Pelham Bolton. When we removed the existing cedar logs we found a layer of Alcoa aluminum... not likely to have been a building material available in the 18th century.
