When there is an old house for sale, the Box likes to roll over and check it out. Here we're visiting the manse at Paxton Presbyterian Church in suburban Harrisburg. The church was founded in 1732, and the present stone meeting house was constructed in 1740.
The manse, built in 1855 of grey limestone matching the church, has presumably housed all of the ministers of the church from that time until a few years ago. It served other purposes for a while and now is to be auctioned off.
I hope the new buyers will enjoy their very quiet neighbors, as they are surrounded on the side and back by the graveyard.
