Log and Brick Schoolhouse, Falmouth, Virginia

Falmouth, Virginia is across the Rappahannock River from Fredericksburg and is part of Stafford County.

Today I went out with my camera to the Falmouth Cemetery, established in 1727. While wandering around the cemetery, I discovered a schoolhouse of what seemed to me most unusual construction: I have never seen anything like it before. It was constructed of brick and logs, and rather than try to describe it, I will insert two photos of it here.
Can anyone point me to more information about this style of construction?
