Adam Stephen House & Triple Brick Museum

Step inside an example of colonial architecture at Adam Stephen House. Purchased by Scottish-born doctor and military officer Adam Stephen in 1770, the house was built over a cave opening that leads to a system of tunnels that may have been used as an escape route from an Indian raid or an attack by the British. On a tour of the house, groups will encounter interpreters dressed in period costume in the family rooms, office, and dining area. Groups can also visit the Triple Brick Museum across the street where they will see quilts, spinning wheels, and railroad items.
