Built in 1690 by Cornelius Anderson, this 3200 sqft home was turned over to Andrew Mershon around 1730. It was about that time that the home began operating as an Inn and Tavern. The current owner has dedicated his time to preserving the integrity of the entire property, keeping its unique originality in tip -top condition.
