Inscription. Built in the center of Old Jamestown, near the intersection of Federal and Union Streets, Richard Mendenhall’s house served as a gathering place for residents and a stopover for travelers. This home exemplifies the community of Quaker tradepeople and farmers who actively opposed slavery, promoted education for all, and labored to create a life of peace and simplicity during troubled times. Family members lived here until 1900.
