1. Hopper-Goetschius House Marker
Inscription. Abraham Hopper built a “new stone house” here (the west wing) in 1739, according to surveyor Charles Clinton. The rest is late 18th century. About 1813 it was bought by the Rev. Stephen Goetschius (1752 – 1837), pastor of Old Stone Church. Borough clerk Stephen J. Goetschius and his wife Lizzie Carlough were the last residents. After over 170 years in the Goetschius family, the house was given to the Borough by Clinton D. and Grace Carlough in 1985.
