circa 1799

The Wolff-Moser house was originally located just inside the northern
boundary of the Wachovia tract. It is a prime example of an early
nineteenth century hand hewn dwelling with brick nogging. The structure
is unusually well-crafted, with plastered walls, molded chair rail, six-paneled
doors and three-part mitered surrounds for doors and windows. The mantels
have arched openings with raised, single panel friezes above the hearth.

In 2003, the historic house, then in an unstable condition, was purchased by
the Town of Bethania and relocated to its current site. Stone from the original
site was saved for reuse and the original interior woodwork was recovered,
purchased and reinstalled.

Our historic house faces Bethania Road in a position appropriate for a
streetscape of the time. During the 18th and early 19th century, buildings
in our town were placed adjacent to the sidewalk, with no front lawns.
It was not until later in the 1800s that houses would be pulled back on the
lot to showcase a small front yard.
