Corro House, Lincoln, ca. 1900

Contributed by Lincoln Historical Society

Description

The Corro House now is home to the Lincoln Historical Society. It was built in 1836 by Jacob Stinchfield and was sold to Dr. Moses Wilson in 1844. It was later sold to Artemus Weatherbee and at his death passed on to his wife, Mary Weatherbee. She later married Joseph Corro and they lived in the house for many years and it became known as the Corro House.

The Historical Society leased the building in 2009 from the Town and it has become a historical landmark as it is being renovated and restored by the Society. Many interesting features have been found in the the house, especially with the uncovering of a bee hive oven and fireplace in the kitchen. This fireplace had been closed in for over one hundred years. Other interesting features have been preserved within the house, such as the wide floor boards, the old hardware on the doors, and the wide boards on the bathroom wall.
