The Mysterious House, Revealed

We were shocked recently to discover that a wooded estate in the 17000 block of Wild Horse Creek Road had been cleared of its trees, revealing an extremely old house that according to satellite images once had multiple additions. It has now been stripped of those late encrustations, and while it is hard to tell from such a great distance, it appearances to be a large log cabin underneath. Does anyone know what this is all about, and the history behind this piece of property?

Update: A week later I went back and the house was under further demolition, revealing large, possibly ax-hewn structural timbers. It looks like it will be gone soon. The sudden removal of screening trees, revealing a house in the now-cleared plot of land, has happened before recently; see this post from May of 2019.

    Did you ever learn more about this one, Chris? I would love to know more, or at least, have a couple facts to hang some research on.

      Sadly, due to its complete demolition, further investigation was not possible. I made inquires but no one seemed to know.
