McCoy House

This reconstruction of the James McCoy house was completed in 2000 and now serves as an interpretive center in Old Town State Park. McCoy was a county sheriff and a state senator here in the late 1800s. In order to reconstruct the house, extensive archaeological and historical research was done in the 1990s. Tomorrow I'll show you a photo of a key element in the research that helped find the house's original location and date of construction.
