But after scientific dating was done to the wood structure by Darrin Rubino, associate professor of biology at Hanover College, it was determined that the house was built after DeBaptiste had left Madison.
Darrin Rubino is an Associate Professor of Biology at Hanover College and is currently the Chair of the Biology Department.
He joined the Hanover Faculty in 2002.
He is a graduate of Thiel College (1995) and earned his Masters from Clarion University of Pennsylvania (1997) and Ph.D. from Ohio University (2002).
Darrin has been a member of the Indiana Academy of Science since 2002 and has served as Chair (currently) and Vice Chair of the Academy's Botany Section.
He became a Fellow of the Academy in 2012.
Darrin is a forest ecologist and studies wood decay, vascular plant community composition, non-native plants, and woody debris (dead and down trees).
His main research interest is dendrochronology, the study of tree-rings.
He uses patterns of tree rings to understand the influence of historic human impacts and natural processes on forest structure, function, and composition.
Currently, Darrin mainly uses tree rings to date the construction of historic buildings in the Mid-Ohio River Valley and has dated scores of buildings in the region.
Darrin's second main research focus is the ecology of invasive plants.
He and his students at Hanover College have been studying the remediation and recovery of southern Indiana forests that have been invaded by vinca (periwinkle; Vinca minor).
Darrin also studies the cultural use of local timber species in construction of buildings and floor looms.
In 2007 and 2012 Darrin was awarded the Baynham Award for Outstanding Teaching at Hanover College. (Hanover College bestows the Baynham Award for Outstanding Teaching for academic excellence, with an emphasis on teaching.)
Darrin Rubino, Associate ...
Darrin Rubino, Associate Professor of Biology at Hanover College, used dendrochronology to date the Double Log Cabin in New Harmony.
Around the time of the American Revolution, trees in the thick forests of southwest Indiana were felled to build shelter for early pioneers near present-day New Harmony.
How can we be so sure?
Scientific testing recently confirmed that the Double Log Cabin in New Harmony was built from timbers dating to 1775.
Darrin L. Rubino, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology at Hanover College, used a method of dating called dendrochronology - which uses the growth ring of trees as a calendar - to examine the Double Log Cabin.
