From 1790 to 1862, Philip Appleman (1755-1830) and his son John (1793-1862) operated a tannery and harness shop on the land that included this property and the four properties to your right, and extended back to South Street (now Washington Street).

Several frame & log buildings & livestock pens were located in the valley behind this house. This house was John Appleman's house. Evidence suggests that it was built around 1840.

John's son, Dr. Philip Sadler Appleman (1849-1924), became an accomplished artist in the late 1800s. Hw was raised in this house until his widowed mother sold the properties and moved to Hagerstown in 1866.
