1. Distiller's House 1803 Marker
Inscription.  After a December 2, 1802 fire, which destroyed the original 1756 brewery and distillery, this home was built during the spring and summer of 1803 for the community's distiller, Hermann Buttner, and his wife. Some of the materials were probably salvaged from the ruins of the first structure. The rear wing dates from 1938.

"The house for the distiller having been finished, Br. and Sr. Hermann Buttner moved today from the farm-house where they have lived since the fire."
Bethabara Diary, September 14, 1803.
