Summary

Significance: Jacob Shimer probably built this house in the 1790s on property belonging to his father, Captain Abraham Shimer. It remained in the family until 1912, but was apparently occupied by tenant farmers in the later 19th century. The house exhibits some fine Federal woodwork.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-574
