The house built by Bryan McDonald at the headwaters of Buffalo Creek (Tinker Creek) west of Amsterdam in Augusta Co, (Botetourt Co.) was a 2 story log house on upper Buffalo four or five miles above the Robinson mill. "The stone foundation of this house extended up to form the walls of the ground floor, over which was built the log house, with its porch across the entire length of the building, and the hugh chimneys at either end being necessitated by the fact that cooking had to be done over their fires". The house still stand and is now as the "Old Bryan McDonald House" and has long been a landmark in Botetourt Co. It might be the oldest structure in present Botetourt Co. (pg 425 A Seed-Bed of the Republic)
