This iconic Oppenheim home is prominently featured on the cover of the Oppenheim Chronicles, its Greek revival architectural style was common in the early to mid-19th century. Local lore has it that this home sits on the site of a brick structure that burned in 1832; and the current structure was built in 1858. It was the longtime home and office of Dr. Yost, a prominent community leader from the horse and buggy days through the early 20th century. It also served as an early version of a Bed and Breakfast as, “The Holiday Farm.” It has always been the center of the hamlet of Oppenheim and was most recently the Allen family abode for over 50 years. A social and cultural center for the Oppenheim hamlet, it has served as a gathering place for many people and purposes, as well as a quiet place for solitude, reflection, and creative expression.
