The Old Stone House is located in Butler County near Slippery Rock Pennsylvania. It acted as a pivotal stop for those travel by wagon from Pittsburgh to Erie Pennsylvania in the 1800’s.
It later played roles in the American Civil War, and the story of Sam Mohawk, who would be charged with murder and be the first and only to face the gallows in Butler County. The Old Stone House later became a farm house before falling into disrepair.
In the 1960’s, the building was reconstructed using the original building’s materials by architect Charles Stotz. It was later purchased by Slippery Rock University. Today, The Old Stone House is one of Butler County’s greatest historic treasures.
