49. Shinkle House

Built in 1854, this house was the residence of Amos Shinkle, best known for his role in building the Roebling Suspension Bridge. The Shinkle family lived in this home during the Civil War up until the time his castle was built on 2nd Street. His home on 2nd Street is no longer standing but this former home of the Shinkles still is and serves as a bed and breakfast.
