Built originally for Samuel and Sarah Maccracken in 1832, this handsome Federal home of brick and native limestone is furnished today as it would have been in the 1830s with some original pieces and numerous early Fairfield County items. Located in one of Lancaster's three National Historic Districts, this outstanding example of American and Georgian architecture has Regency features, the most prominent of which is a double curved wall with bay windows along the two-storied west portico that is supported by five fluted Ionic columns. Throughout the house twelve-foot high ceilings draw eyes upward to the beautiful woodwork, archways and chandeliers. An unsupported spiral stairway leading up three floors is highlighted at the top by a lantern light in the central gable. Today, visitors enjoying a guided tour of this 13-room home will learn about the influential families who resided here and the early Lancaster community as it grew from a frontier town to a city.
