1854Thomas Conrey probably had this house built around 1854 with lumber from his mill. In 1876 it came into the possession of Jacob Metz and his wife, Sarah. Mr. Metz was a blacksmith with a business on the corner of Front Street and William Street. This dwelling is typical of several on George Street. Its size, form and scale maintain the visual quality of the street. In 1983 the house was purchased from the Bethel African Methodist Church and restored by Thomas and Margaret Coulter. It was later purchased in 1989 by Robert Bernstine. Mr. Bernstine served on the town council from 1996 to 2000 and as Mayor from 2000 to 2006.
