FENCEMAKER'S HOUSE -
The building at the center of the Bee Hive is known as the Fencemaker's or Fencing Maker's House. Originally there were at least four connected buildings (like rowhouses), including the Fence Maker's House and Wallace Tavern. In the late nineteenth century the others were dismantled for their stone to build Franklin T. Mackie’s grand house “Highlawn” nearby. Partial stone foundations are all that remain of them here. The Fence Maker’s House was a dwelling for workers in nearby mills. As the mills disappeared it was rented out and became home to many families over the years.
