Elijah Oliver Place
Elijah Oliver was the son of John Oliver (POI 3), and he was born in the cove in 1824. He moved out of the cove before the Civil War after he was married. After the war he bought back this property.
His original farm was destroyed during the U.S. Civil War by Confederate marauders. The homestead includes a dog-trot cabin, a chicken coop, a corn crib, and a crude stable.
The spring house is one of the most interesting features and is the only one in the cove still intact. Spring houses were built over trickling springs to protect the water supply and as refrigeration for butter, milk, eggs, and other perishables.
