Historic Tate Farm   $435,000

1975 Shrivers Corner Road, Gettysburg
For sale by owner
 
For sale: Historic Tate Farm, Gettysburg This restored farmhouse and formal gardens were the scene of trade with the Indians and settlers along Beaver Dam Creek and later part of the Gettysburg Campaign. On July 2, 1863 Union and Confederate cavalry collided head on here.

In earlier history, President George Washington had his horse shod at the farm's blacksmith shop on his return from quelling the Whiskey Rebellion in October of 1794.

The outbuildings at the Tate Farm are original: a summer kitchen with walk in fireplace, a granary, spring house, carriage house, garden shed, outhouse, stable and large barn (complete with historic cannonball hole).
 
"The Tate Farm is the only Gettysburg battlefield property with all of its original outbuildings still standing."

Charming Forge Rd., Womelsdorf Price Reduced: $695,000

Arguably the finest "country" house in the early days of our nation, the Charming Forge Mansion (1784) features "Philadelphia" quality woodwork in every room. The early wing (1749) is nearly intact from the colonial days when "Baron" Stiegel of Manheim, the original iron master, found the setting "charming". It remains so with the surroundings along the Tulpehocken Creek protected by a local land trust.

A museum quality restoration began in 1994, modern amenities were installed with remarkable care and sensitivity. This is a fine antique house for a modern lifestyle, w/designer kitchen, 7 bed chambers, 7 working fireplaces, 4 full baths, radiant heat, central air, stocked trout stream, etc.
 
Outbuildings received the same careful attention: a carriage barn large enough for four cars, a privy housing a generator, a summer kitchen, bake oven and an ancillary stone dwelling. In the early 19th century, the Union Canal was built in front of the property. The towpath and canal bed remain along with the stone arch tunnel and a lock further downstream.

CARBON COUNTY

The Old Jail Museum, 128 W. Broadway, Jim Thorpe    $749,000 

For sale The Old Jail in Jim Thorpe/Mauch ChunkThe former Carbon County Prison was used in service as a correctional facility from 1871 to 1995, holding over a century’s worth of inmates and even acting as the site of some high profile executions. The two-story jail has 72 rooms and 27 cells including a basement dungeon where prisoners were kept in solitary confinement. The most famous occurrence in the jail was the execution of seven coal miners known as “Molly Maguires.” In a highly unscrupulous trial led against the miners by the coal company, the workers were hanged right in the jail.

Today the jail is preserved as a museum where visitors can come and wander the cells and warden’s quarters, seeing the bleak stone interiors of the historic cells. The site plays up the possible haunting by the executed inmates and most unsettlingly a mysterious handprint stained on the wall of the cells. -- from Atlas Obscura
 
The jail was built in 1871, designed by architect Edward Haviland, who was the son of architect John Haviland, who designed the innovative (for its time) Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, a National Historic Landmark. Edward Haviland designed the County prisons at Easton, Clearfield, Williamsport, Mauch Chunk, Ebensburg, Coudersport and Reading.

historic furnace ruin in forest settingAUCTION! Tuesday, September 24, 2019 @ 3pm

1.7+ acre adjacent to Michaux State Forest
OPEN HOUSE: September 14, 2019, 1- 2:00 pm
More information is available at the real estate auction listing.
 
Big Pond Furnace was first built in 1836. After a period of inactivity in the late 1870s (due to economic depression linked to the Panic of 1873), it was purchased by the Ahl family in 1879. The iron works was refurbished: the furnace’s bosh was relined with fresh firebrick (but not filled to put into blast), and fresh charcoal was made on 6,000 acres of associated forest lands and hauled down to the charcoal storage house. However, the Ahl’s efforts ended abruptly on May 21, 1880 just before the furnace was restarted. A devastating fire began in the new hot charcoal stacked in front of the charcoal house. This fire destroyed much of the iron works except the stone stack and the attached casting house. This iron operation was never rebuilt.

Most of the work’s acreage was eventually included in the Michaux State Forest by the 1930s, but strangely the furnace stack itself sits on a very small parcel of privately owned land (now offered for sale by real estate auction). The stack was neglected, and in 2011 one side collapsed. In the past year, cracks in the casting arch side of the stack (facing the road), and in the blowing arch to the right side, have notably widened – the entire masonry structure must now be considered at risk of sudden collapse.

This furnace stack still shows original features including a tuyere nose stone and the unused but intact firebrick lining, hence it is of particular interest from an industrial archaeology perspective. Also, the head race can be easily followed through the State Forest a quarter-mile to its origin at a nearby creek. Big Pond illustrates what happens to masonry structures if neglected – a contrast to the happier story at Pine Grove Furnace, only 5 miles across the mountain.

In the 1930s a typical CCC camp was located near the furnace ruins. There was a lake behind a long dam (now breeched) directly across from the furnace. Many maps including Google still show the CCC lake, but it’s been gone for years. (This is distinct from the “Big Pond” lake one mile to the northeast, thought to be a natural sinkhole.) In recent years a large log house was built where the CCC barracks once were.

106 S Second Street, Columbia PA 17512 PA  Price Reduced: $349,900

Victorian House in Lancaster CountyThis striking Victorian home was built by John S Bachman. Bachman owned the Bachman and Dehuff Saw and Planing Mill, located along Front Street in Columbia. The mill is gone now, but in the 1860s when his partnership with DeHuff was formed, it had a crucial impact on the development of Columbia's now Historic District. John Bachman owned the planing mill that manufactured all the wooden components of a house while George DeHuff possessed excellent drafting skills. Together they made a formidable pair. They interpreted the plans of such noted architects as Issac Hobbs and Sons and Samual Sloan from Godey's Ladies Book fame in addition to formulating their own designs. Bachman changed partners in the 1880s merging with John C Forry. That partnership resulted in another string of notable homes and commercial buildings.

The home was build in two sections. The first in 1836, which is why the side door looks like a front door. The second section was added in 1878, which opened onto the newly created Second Street. The carriage mounting block still stands in the front of the home. The home also had a carriage house but it was destroyed by fire in the 1950's. A partial wall of the carriage house remains.

The home's structure is an interesting mix of Queen Anne and Italianate styles. Features include a square tower with a small stained glass window, massive double oak doors with recessed panels, beautifully turned balusters and spindle trim combined with a pierced star design beneath the cornice. The house walls are multiple courses of thick brick of salmon hue and an unusual design.

Brick walls topped with wrought iron fencing surround the side garden and yard which is overlooked by a second floor balcony. There is also a rear brick patio and small rear yard. Another feature that was all the rage among well-to-do Victorians in the early 1800's is a three story outhouse, which is still visible from the rear of the home.

Inside, the home is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture with high ceilings, highly detailed woodwork, art plaster ceilings and beautiful hand woven carpeting. The decor is accentuated by period brass lighting fixtures, period wall coverings and paint colors. The entrance vestibule contains lovely molded and finished Lincrusta and hand-painted walls. The home has a three story walnut keyhole staircase and railing. The current owner has recreated a time gone by while adding modern wiring, heating and plumbing systems.

The Inn at Twin Linden, 2092 Main St., Narvon    Price Reduced: $725,000

Facade of inn buildingCommercial Property: This 177 year old home was built by Robert Jenkins, a wealthy iron master for Windsor Forge, as a wedding present for his daughter. Sarah Jenkins married Alfred Nevin and the home was called the Nevin Mansion. It later became known as Twin Linden, after two trees planted on the property in celebration of Sarah and Alfred’s wedding.

The home stayed as a private residence until 1955 when it was briefly the Twin Linden Home for Aged Men and Women, then in the early 1960s it was converted into rental apartments. The apartments lasted until the 1980s and The Inn At Twin Linden was opened in 1987. George Washington died in 1799 so he was never a guest at the Inn, but many believe he visited Churchtown during the Revolutionary War to purchase cannonballs from the Windsor Forge.

Located in the Historic Village of Churchtown in Lancaster County, this turnkey bed & breakfast has 8 guest rooms, ample common areas, a commercial kitchen and beautiful grounds. The owners private rooms include a full kitchen, living/dining room with vaulted ceiling, two full bathrooms, two bedrooms and an office. Parking is on site, including a two car garage. The property includes a barn, gazebo, several porches and a balcony. It is tastefully appointed throughout with high quality furnishings and linens. Business details are available upon request.
