Old Stone House
When Michael Braun completed his stone house in 1799, the site was virtual wilderness. The two-story Georgian house is indeed stately for its time with the stones on the front carefully shaped and matched, creating an impressive face to visitors. Climb to the second floor and you’ll discover high up in the end walls next to the chimneys openings that some believe to be gun ports for fighting off hostile American Indians. These are ventilation holes for bringing in cool air onto the second floor. Tours offered Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm.
