post-and-rail fence


Post-and-plank is a construction method which was once fairly common in various areas of the United States, but which is now rarely used. Hand-sawn logs would be mortised and tenoned into vertical corner posts to create the sides of the building. Few post-and-plank buildings survive; the most complete example is the Cray House in Stevensville, Maryland, which was built around 1809.
