The Michael Braun House

Locally known as the Old Stone House, this structure is the oldest residential building still standing in Rowan County .  The house was originally completed in 1766 by Michael Braun, a German immigrant by way of Pennsylvania .  In the 1950s the home was in desperate need of repair when the Rowan County Museum stepped in and began a six year overhaul which resulted in a magnificently restored treasure.  This site is open for tours on weekends.
