Some history: ~This house was built in 1812~, so said an inscription found on the rafters over a century ago, reported by later resident Mae Klein, who wrote about the house in ~Millersville Bicentennial 1761-1961~ p.66. Part of the original layout of Millersville, the house may have been built for Abraham Shenk from one of the founding Mennonite families, who sold the place in 1840. A relative, Christian L. Shenk, bought the house and 25 acre farm in 1860 and five generations of his family lived there until 1941. Shenk~s huge barn was across the road."
