Their sturdy home was located at the very edge of the wilderness and consideration was given to create, in a sense, a fort to protect them from the sometimes unfriendly native peoples. The home we see here today has been modified in three significant ways since it was built. Evidence shows that the original structure consisted of three rooms on the first level and two bedrooms up. There was also a large attic created by a long sloping roofline that extended from the ridgeline to the first floor wall. This construction was typical for the period and is considered a lean-to or saltbox style design. The cost and availability of window sash in the early 18th century was such that even the “well-to-do” Holcombs had just five small windows located across the front facade of the house.
