Abandoned civil war era house still standing in Frazier, Pennsylvania

I was driving around looking for things to shoot when I came by this house today. While I was taking photos, one of the neighbors walked over to see what I was doing and we exchanged some information. He told me that the previous owners didn’t realize how old the house was and when it started to deteriorate, they found the walls of a much, much older structure underneath. It was abandoned as it was cheaper for the family to build a new home on their 50+ acres of land than to try and renovate this one. I asked him why they had not knocked it down if they were not going to renovate it and he wasn’t sure.
There was a gravel road that wrapped around the house and appeared to go pretty deep into the woods. I believe that somewhere back there is their new home. There was a shed and outhouse along that gravel road, appearing to be nearly as old as the abandoned house.
You can see the full gallery in higher resolution here including pictures of the shed.
