The two-story, double pen log house, was built by the Rev. James Kemper in Walnut Hills. It is one of the oldest log houses built in Cincinnati that is still standing and Rev. Kemper was the first Presbyterian minister ordained north of the Ohio River. The house was moved in 1912 to the Cincinnati Zoo and again in 1981 by the Ohio Society to its present location at Heritage Village Museum in Sharon Woods Park.
