ďWe now own the Retherford property in Blooming Grove where the Biere Log House was reconstructed. Up to this point we were under the assumption that it was built by John Powers in 1810. I recently saw part of an article written by you about the house being relocated to Blooming Grove. Do you have any more history on the cabin, etc.Ē

She wrote to me because (and I really didnít remember this at all) I had written a story about the place way back when I was a young reporter in Richmond. I donít know exactly when I did this article, but I left Richmond in the fall of 1969.

If you can help us on the history, let me know and Iíll get you in touch with her.
