Vanmeter Stone House

The Vanmeter Stone House is important as the home of an early Ohio settler and farmer and is a fine example of Southern Ohio stone architecture. The land on which the it stands was purchased in 1801 by Isaac Vanmeter. Built of rough cut sandstone, quarried locally, construction began about 1823. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
