"The National Register of Historic Places, kept by the United States Department of the Interior, is the official list of the nation's cultural resources worthy of preservation. . ." The Oyer House was honored by the Register for its architecture and its state of preservation in 1995. It is a c. 1830 Federal 4 over 4 stuccoed stone house, carefully restored, on approx. 2 rural acres. Four prominent chimneys service seven fireplaces, all with their period mantles. The central hall and staircase leads up through three floors, whose rooms feature all original baseboards, chair rails, chimney cabinets, door moldings and hardware, including period door latches and box- locks. All new mechanicals, wiring, plumbing and bathrooms and kitchens were added with care from the l990's to the present as the house, when found, had none of these amenities, being in its original 1830 state. A new roof, an outbuilding serving as a garage, and a sunroom were added at this time. When the six dormers were replaced, two large rooms, bath and galley kitchen made a third floor suite, completing a 4-5 bedroom 3 1/2 bath house. But it is the quality and the "great state of preservation of the structure and the superb original condition of a large amount of decorative painting found throughout the house" which makes it unique. "All major doors, the stairway from the first floor to the attic, baseboard moldings, and chimney cupboards are either faux -grained in figured maple, crotch mahogany, bird"s-eye maple, or marbelized in two types of faux stone."* In the back parlor, under layers of old wall-paper, was discovered rows of stenciling from floor to ceiling, in various states of preservation Hidden in its peaceful, central Pennsylvania enclave, near large areas of state forests, parks, and famous fishing and hunting areas, this unique house is within an easy drive of Penn State and the cultural assets it affords. *Brown, Ann Eckert. American Wall Stenciling, 1790-1840. Near McAlevy's Fort.
