The Underwood West Brick (at Brimstone Road)

This is a private home, but you can use the parking lot of the Jonah’s Run Baptist Church to view from next door.

Lewis Dakin bought this property from James Haines in 1850, and built this house soon afterward. Amos Underwood (1786-1867) from York County, PA, first settled in Liberty Township and then purchased this property in Chester Township, Clinton County, Ohio. The Underwoods were Hicksite Quakers attending Meeting in Harveysburg.

His son Elihu continued in the farming and fruit business. His grandson Daniel married Wilhelmina Hahn in 1902, continuing the family business until his death in 1942. Underwood family members lived in this location for about 100 years.

These houses are part of the “Underwood Farms Rural Historic District” which is on the National Register of Historic Places (#05001519).
