HISTORY! HISTORY! HISTORY! Historic early 1800 Tavern, Inn and Principal Residence on 2.2 acres which wind down to a long frontage on Mt Rock Spring Creek. The original home was built in the mid-1700's while the current brick home dates to circa 1820. Along with the main structure, there is a large garage/barn, a log cabin which was moved piece by piece from a family property in Lurgan, smoke house, garden area, and inground swimming pool which has a new liner and new pump. All the pool equipment conveys with the property. The swimming pool is located above the grounds and is barely visible from the main structures so as to not take away from the essence of the grounds. The main house still has the Tavern room which can be excluded from the adjoining room dining room by large doors that pull down. The Tavern room still has the old bar, fireplace, wide board floors and candle candelabra. The kitchen has walk-in fireplace, which had been covered over, but the latest owner uncovered it and rebuilt it. When electricity was being installed in the kitchen, a hidden underground room with access from the kitchen via a trap door under the cabinets was discovered. Bricks are laid all around the room about 30 high and 3' across. There was a bucket on a pole with access to the cistern. Could this have been part of the underground railroad!? The entire property is full of intrique and is extremely unique. What an opportunity to own a piece of history! Opportunities like this are rare and so is the property! The main house consists of 3200 sq ft and has such great potential! Much more information about the history available upon request.
