Originally located in eastern Guilford County this one-and-a-half story structure was the home of Christian and Mary Isley. Like other German families, the Isleys migrated to North Carolina from Pennsylvania. In 1788 they purchased approximately 300 acres of land along Rock Creek. When Christian Isley died 1845 the property was divided between his wife and their thirteen children.

In 1972, the museum purchased the house and moved it from its original location at Bethel Church Road. The central field stone chimney and foundation were carefully taken apart and reassembled. The house's exterior walls were constructed with hand-hewn, v-notched oak logs. The original logs and the chinking and daubing—the materials used to fill the spaces between the logs—have been replaced. The summ beam, the 30-foot poplar log that supports the upper floor, is thought to be original.
