Years in the planning, the project is slated to become a museum to house artifacts and exhibits celebrating the history of the Perrysburg area. The house, a two-story Greek Revival structure located at 27340 W. River Road, just west of Fort Meigs, was built on a portion of a plot of land, known as the Spafford Grant, inherited by Aurora Spafford, an area judge, from his father, Amos, one of the first settlers in the Perrysburg area. The home was built in 1823 with wood shipped from Buffalo, N.Y. In addition to being a residence, the home for a time was also a meeting place of the Perrysburg Methodist congregation before they built their church at Second and Walnut Street in 1835.
