Rustic Cottage

MAB-45
Off Chestnut Street, Berea
1901

Situated among a grove of native hardwoods, Rustic Cottage provides a unique contrast with the larger brick buildings which surround it/ Unrefined tree timbers on both levels of a two-story porch echo the surrounding shade trees. The second level of the porch is covered by a central gable that projects from the gable roof. Small brackets on the gable ends support the wide overhangs.

This frame structure was initially an administration building, then a weaving shop. Today, it houses Students for Appalachia, Upward Bound, and the Personnel Training Office.
