Long Description:
Coal-and-Wood House-Bulltown Historic District--The coal-and-wood house, a rectangular building constructed of rough saw-mill lumber, stood here. After the introduction of gas heating, the building was used for general storage.

Bulltown families traditionally gathered wood for their stoves in early fall. Family members used horses to haul timber from the woods, then cut it into smaller pieces and stacked it in a pile outside the door of their home.

Neighbors got their coal from one another's farms, using teams of horses, mules, or oxen to uncover deposits close to the surface--an inexpensive source of heating fuel compared to the available alternatives, especially company-mined coal.
