The Shaw residence, located 100 feet west, was used by the British officers as a staging headquarters in the War of 1812 - Battle of North Point.

On September 12, 1814 legend has daughter Eleanor Shaw leaping from a second floor window to avoid improper advances of a British officer. General Robert Ross sent him back to the fleet in disgrace and left this site for the Battle of North Point. The house was dismantled by the Bethlehem Steel Company in 1976.
