Samuel Shrewsbury House

House built circa 1810 by Samuel Shrewsbury *1763~1835) on 704 acre tract of land received from Colonel John Dickinson. Sandstone and hewn hardwood logs used in construction were obtained locally from the land. Shrewsbury, a revolutionary soldier, and his family, moved here in 1798 from Bedford County, Virginia. He and his brother John became active with Dickinson in the slat industry.
