Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 28, 1983):
At the time of the Whiskey Rebellion (1794), this 2-1/2-story fieldstone home was owned by a local official, David Espy. Espy made it available for the temporary use of President Washington (October 19-21, 1794) who had accompanied the militia army that later suppressed the rebels. This structure is also the only extant property associated with Revolutionary War (and U.S. Army) General Arthur St. Clair.
