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.
