—Port Gibson Historic Tour —

Built by Thomas Foster as a one room log house in 1768 in the community of Scotia, located 5 miles south of the present town of Roxie in Franklin County, Mississippi. About 1789 a "dog trot" was added to connect a second room. The upstairs was added for families living quarters and the downstairs was used as a stage stop accommodation for travelers.

The construction of the building was of hand-hewn yellow pine put together by the dove-tail method. The timbers above the front door are 52 feet in length cut from heart pine and still in perfect condition.

Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Faulk purchased "Scotia" from the Robert Ferrells and moved it to Warren County, log by log. It was moved to this location in 1976 and donated in memory of the Faulk, Foster and Johnston families of Claiborne County.
