Hand hewn porch beams on Korns family farmhouse

This 2003 photo shows the hand hewn porch beams on the 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. The hewn nature of the beams suggests that the house may have been made before the circular saw, invented circa 1810/14, became popular in this part of rural Pennsylvania.
