It’s disputed by local historians whether Todd Lincoln rented a room in the Simeon Folsom house while he was a student at the Academy or was it the attached brick house next door? Either way we can assume that while in town his father Abraham Lincoln stood in front of this brick Federal style home and admired its curved façade and attention to detail. Imagine being a steward to such history, well here's your chance. Built in the early 1800’s this unique home graces the gateway to downtown Exeter and looks out over Great Bridge and the Exeter River. With almost 1900 square feet of living space in addition to a commercial office space on the street this lovingly restored home offers a unique opportunity for its next owner. The current steward took great pains to match historic details such as the custom shutters with iron work, cornice detail found in an 1806 builder’s book reproduced by a master craftsman, along with restoring the garage door opening, repointing the facade and replacing the front door to match the period. Come explore and fall in love with part of Exeter's history at 8 High Street the historic Simeon Folsom house.
