Significance: Left unit of the Dogan House as one faces it from the East is built of oak logs roughly squared with a modified type of notching. Shurtleff in The Log Cabin Myth identifies the type as that used in Virginia for housing slaves or farm help. The right half of the house would seem to be one of the outhouses of William Henry Dogan's "Peach Grove" estate, relocated when the main house was burned on the eve of the Civil War. From a close analysis of Dogan property records in the Court House of Prince William County, reveals three periods of building activity - one, 1817-1819; another 1840-1845, and the third from 1856 to 1860. There is no conclusive answer as to dates of the right half of the structure. In 1881-82 a leanto addition was made across the west side of the saddle-bag house. The exterior including the log portion was covered in clapboards. In 1948 this non-historic addition was removed.
