HISTORY

The original rock house was moved to this lot from the Gombert place to its present location in 1983. Since then, Scott and Shelly Billingsley have worked to incorporate modern conveniences into their home while maintaining the character of the old structure. They have used leaded and stained glass windows collected from auctions and estate sales.

The lot where the house stands was part of an old shooting range which ran behind the Phillip Manor House on South Main Street.
