Among the oldest structures in Monroeville, this house was originally built by Abraham Taylor as a Stagecoach Inn (the Rising Sun Inn), strategically located near the tollgate of the Northern Pike. The log house was in the Warner family for generations so that it became known locally as the Warner farmhouse. In 1976, it was sold by Mrs. Leonora Warner Reese.
It was originally a two-story house of log beams and lath siding, with an ell extension on a stone foundation. The entrance was centered in the front, but renovations have moved it to the side; the front entrance being replaced with an oriel window. This house has been extensively modernized, and is currently in use as an office for Dr. D. A. MacDonald.
