Own a piece of Civil War History!
This beautiful, historically significant home in Sharpsburg, Maryland near Antietam National Battlefield, is steeped in civil war history and has been lovingly restored. Zoned for residential & commercial use, this versatile 4BR & 3BA home includes a converted 2 story brick stable/shop/store and is well placed at the west corner of the of Sharpsburg’s historic town square.

Featuring gorgeous original wood floors, exposed interior brick walls, and 7 fireplaces with original wood mantels, a glass atrium, as well as, tastefully renovated bathrooms & a stunning kitchen with a center island and granite counter tops, this is a unique opportunity to own an extraordinary piece of 19th century history. Dr. John Hartman, in 1796, tended to his patients in the east parlor until his passing in 1819, then Philip Myers purchased the home and operated his store and tavern. In 1850, Dr. Augustin Biggs purchased the home and opened his medical practice & apothecary, and after the 1862 Battle of Antietam, Dr. Biggs treated many of the casualties in his home, and after the war, he planned, designed and ran Antietam National Cemetery. Dr. Biggs continued practicing medicine from his home until he passed in 1889.

Many fine stewards have walked these same heart of pine floors, worked and entertained in these spacious parlors, and enjoyed the historic Sharpsburg community lifestyle.

This is a home of rare & beautiful distinction, close to DC & Baltimore, yet a world away.
