Bishop Burrell House
Bishop Burrell was best known as the local brew master. Burrell operated the local brewery located on the parcel of land now occupied by the County Highway Department.

The hops, [sic] grain needed in the brewery process, [sic] was stored in the hops house, now a private residence, located immediately north of the Burrell home. The upper floors of the building were constructed of 14 inch [sic] white oak planks.
