Nelles Fitch House

Built in 1791 by Col. Rogert Nelles, served as a barracks during the War of 1812 with a prison cell in the basement.  Inhabitated by the Nelles family until 1852.  The back part of this house is said to have been a log cabin built in 1788 by Robert Nelles as a home while building Nelles Manor from 1788 to 1798
