House

-A A +A
Late 18th century. 331 Abbott Run Valley (Lanesville) Rd.

This Federal house in the full two-and-one-half-story format, genially enlarged at various times, boasts a fine doorway with fluted pilasters and heavy entablature. It once belonged to Ebenezer Metcalf, Sr., the first Metcalf to settle in Arnold Mills. Although he came as a farmer, he was mechanically inclined, a predisposition which he passed on to his sons.
