War of 1812 Bicentennial

—United States Capital for a Day —

Greenbury Murphy, Brookeville's first blacksmith, built this exceptionally fine Federal style house about 1807, financing its construction and that of a blacksmith shop with a mortgage from local merchant Caleb Bentley. The brick house, a hall-and-parlor plan, featured a fashionable doorway with transom and side-lights. In 1814 it belonged to Caleb Bentley and his nephew Joseph, who may have been living here at the time with his wife Anna Briggs Bentley. By 1815, the town's new blacksmith, John McCauley, purchased this property.
