The House that knocks
How creepy would it be to stand outside of a house, and hear knocking noises coming from the inside? Well, that is what many experience when they stand outside of the David Lenz House in New Harmony.
According to Visit New Harmony, the David Lenz house was built sometime between 1819 and 1822. It was then occupied by the Lenz Family who immigrated to America from Germany in 1804.
This house is a typical Harmonist single-family frame dwelling. Houses, like the Lenz, were frame houses built mainly with square timber logs of poplar or oak. The spaces between the logs were chinked with wood shims and a clay grouting mix of straw and river shells. Roofs were framed with rafters and mortised and tenoned at the peak.
Today the house is owned by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America, and it is available for tours of the house and garden.
