Provenance note:
Naaman Reich, a painter, was the house's mid-nineteenth century owner.
Architectural note:
The home followed the pattern of alteration typical of Bethanian attempts at modernization. Around the Revolutionary War, the home was built of heavy logs with a central chimney. Around the 1840s, Bethanian houses were updated to reflect current home usage by removing the central chimney and adding end chimneys. At this time Reich also modernized his home by painting trompe l'oeil details in the parlor.
Historical note:
The home is said to have been used as General Cornwallis's headquarters during the Revolutionary War. The home lies within the boundaries of the Bethania Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
