Myers-Masker House - Van Iderstine House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Myers-Masker House - Van Iderstine House

This house dates back to 1795 and is known as either the “Myers-Masker House” or the “Van Iderstine House”. It is commonly believed by locals that Hessian prisoners were held in this house during the Revolutionary War (which, confusingly, was won almost a decade before this home was built?) Some sort of spirit seems to linger here, Hessian or not. Footsteps are constantly heard on the staircase when no one else is around.
