Dusmal House


The side hall entry, three-bay, two-and-a-half story random course stone house was built in 1839. It has a single-story rear wing that probably housed the original kitchen with large stone fireplace and chimney. It is built in the Post Colonial style with late Georgian influences. There are two rectangular windows in the gable end with a unique circular stone under the steeply-pitched roof's apex slighty above these windows. On the opposite gable end is a second large stone chimney. The house stands on property once owned by John Holcroft, a leader in the Whiskey Insurrection. [p. 58 POP]
