This home was built circa 1814 by Isaiah and Charity Hasket Lynch. They were Quakers active in the Miami Monthly Meeting of Friends. Isaiah died from typhoid fever shortly after the home was built, and when Charity became ill, their eight children were parceled out and raised by other Quaker families. The house was sold at sheriff’s auction in 1816.
