The Site of the Elizabeth Haddon House (private), NE cor. Wood Lane and Marion Avenue, is on a small hill rising unexpectedly from the midst of modern homes in the northeastern part of town. The grounds and the buildings have retained their colonial appearance, but the log home Elizabeth Haddon built burned in 1742. The sedate three-story brick house, built on the site in 1845, has a flat roof with great chimney, solid white shutters, and a Classic Revival porch. before the house are two English yew trees brought over in 1712 by Elizabeth, and on the door is her silver knocker. In the garden stands the original stillhouse built by Elizabeth; it is probably the oldest structure in the community. The young woman won the lasting gratitude of neighboring Indian through the manufacture of medicinal whiskey. From the very first the enterprise was so successful that the sick and the ailing beat an almost constant tattoo on Elizabeth's silver knocker. Although the suffering tribesmen underwent treatment for prolonged periods, complete cures were rarely effected.
