Colonel Bodo Otto Residence
Dr. Bodo Otto, of Luneburg, Province of Hanover, Prussia, came to America 1752. In 1772 his son Bodo Otto, Jr., purchased one hundred acres of land for four hundred ninety-seven pounds the property of William Scull who had purchased the same 1766 from Benjamin Lodge, at Mickleton. Here Dr. Bodo Otto, Jr., who served as a surgeon in Washington's Army at Valley Forge, lived. During 1777 when the Tory invasion took place this place was partially burned. The original property dates back to 1688.
One of the best examples of pre-Revolutionary stone construction, this house was built before 1771.
