Summary
This article concerns a house built in 1790 by Martin Barr in Quarryville, PA. "...the old structure to which I ask your brief attention commands interest and has the charm of novelty. Situated in the northern end of the borough of Quarryville, perched on a slight hill, stands a large stone building, known for many years as 'The Ark', and the hill on which it stands as 'Mount Ararat.' These names, it is said, were given by a noted wag of his day, named Longenecker, soon after the house was built."
Notes
"Between 140-150 N Church Street, Quarryville, PA 17566. The Ark is an old stone building that remains one of the most intriguing structures in the Southern End of Lancaster County. This mansion, erected in 1791 by Martin Barr, was one of several buildings that he built around that time period and still stands today on Mount Ararat. The house was centrally located on the property owned by Martin Barr at the time. The structure was made mostly of strong walnut wood; the walls were twenty-four inches thick and a hallway twelve feet wide! The Ark was in existence before Quarryville came to be and the area was instead known as Barrs Quarries until 1833. Abram Barr inherited the Ark after Martin Barr passed away. Many years later after the grandchildren of Martin Barr died off the estate was divided and sold. The Ark was bought and became Hotel Quarryville."
