Two separate entrances from the columned front porch (9x28) with pond views are your way into this historic beauty. Hardwood flooring throughout the entire home. This property saw its fair share of action during the Battle of Valley Forge as this was one of the very few homes built in the 1700s in Valley Forge. This American Classic was also a safe haven for many using the underground railroad on their way to freedom during the American Civil War, and the old trap door is visible in the living room. There is also a bootlegger chimney that was used during Prohibition in the 1920s- but don’t worry, it’s capped now!
While the days of The Revolutionary War, the Underground Railroad and Prohibition are in the past, you cannot help but feel the American History that echoes in his home.
