THE AUTREY HOUSE MUSEUM, a satellite property of the Lincoln Parish Museum
Located in Lincoln Parish on Highway 152 between Dubach and Hico, the Absalom Autrey house is an example of the log dogtrot, the most common traditional house type of the early North Louisiana hill country. Built in 1849 and believed to be the oldest surviving structure in Lincoln Parish, the hand-hewn log house with square notches has an open central hall with two rooms on each side, an original ironstone chimney, and a sleeping loft. The family cemetery is located behind the house.
