1. The Dyer's and Potter's House 1782 Marker
Inscription. Johannes Schaub, Jr., a dyer, built this house in 1782. It is the oldest brick house in Forsyth County. This house, its additions and out buildings, served from 1789 until 1872 as the home and shop to a succession of Bethabara potters. Archaeologists located the kiln in the rear of the building.

"(Br. Johannes) Schaub now desires to settle in Bethabara, and there establish a dye house,--a lack of which our Brethren and Sisters have keenly felt hitherto, as they had to send all yarn to Pennsylvania to be colored..."
Bishop Graff, letter, June 28, 1780.
 
Erected by Historic Bethabara Park.
