The stately buildings on the corner of Front & King Streets have borne silent witness to history since the turn of the 18th century. Built of brick, they have maintained their vigil since the presidency of John Adams. In 1812 their occupants learned that the British had invaded and set fire to the White House in the nation's capital. In 1861 the inhabitants within learned that the Civil War had begun and in April of 1865 that President Lincoln had been assassinated. They would stand through many historical events and the families dwelling within saw history unfold for well over two hundred years.

Now another owner can be part of this legacy as the current owners are ready to pass their stewardship into new hands.

Once a bed & breakfast in the early nineties, these buildings (joined as one but can easily be separated) are located in the commercial district and can be used for business purposes if desired. They contain a total of 18 rooms and 13 fireplaces. They boast original hardwood floors, windows and doors as well as woodwork. If one is seeking a period house and respects architectural originality, one would be hard pressed to find another example easily.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
