Prepare to be AMAZED by this rare & charming home that is lovingly maintained in its almost 225 year old history! Only owned by 5 families maintaining the historic uniqueness. Constructed in 1795, seldom does such a property of historic interest grace the market. Built by William Wright, a financier of the first bridge across the Susquehanna, nephew of Susanna Wright (Wright's Ferry Mansion, Columbia an adjoining property), grandson of one of the founders of the community of Columbia. It is known that William Wright, was a Quaker and fervent abolitionist, was perhaps the first to suggest a system and concert of action among the friends of the slaves to help them in their flight from southern bondage to a land of freedom by establishing a number of stations, along this route, where friends could direct and pass the fugitives from one friend to another. Hence it came to be known as the Underground Railroad, as stated in the History of Lancaster by Ellis and Evans, County, 1883. This dwelling has long been believed to be a "stop" on the Underground Railroad and has become the home of John Q Denny - one of the groups of men who set fire to the 4th bridge across the Susquehanna to keep Confederate Forces on the western shore which set up battle of Gettysburg, 1863. This time capsule home has originally faced the river but as the town developed the back became the front. It features an enviable setting of the Federal Period that has been retained in the original 1795 section of the home and most of the original structure is there, with one of the best Chippendale Flying Staircase west of Philadelphia, from the moldings and mantels to the floors and walls and locks and keys! Despite all the changes made to the dwelling, windows, mantles, and pocket doors are intact from the late 1800's renovation. The recently renovated includes soft pine flooring from France, a modern kitchen, and an additional 1st-floor bedroom and full bath. Three-story brick, 6 bedroom suite, situated in a picturesque neighborhood, and directly next door to Wright Ferry Mansion Museum and walking trails, it features a spacious level yard, pristine original wide-hardwood floors. Close to almost everything and still feels tucked away on a quiet tree-lined street. If these walls could talk - imagine the stories it could share! Have you ever wanted to own a piece of history? NOW is your chance! Schedule your exclusive showing today!
