Located in the historic Shipoke district of Downtown Harrisburg. This 2700 sf, 5 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom Victorian was built in 1856. It is on the historical society tour along with the National Historic Register and was the original home of Civil War era General Joseph F Knipe.

This home is a detached single family home with no shared walls or spaces. Private entrance in the front and garden.

Feel free to search the web for more details on the General.

The space
This home offers period charm and character with many original features in tact such as the sweeping large staircase, doors, oil lamp accents, down to the original clawfoot bathtub. However, it has received updates to offer modern comforts such as Central heat, AC, on demand hot water and WIFI.

It is an old home and the floors creak as one would expect but it only adds to the nostalgia.

Where you’ll be

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States

Shipoke is in many ways the oldest section of the city, settled by Europeans in 1710 as a small trading post. It was here that the Harris Ferry and Tavern was originally located, which is the origin of the name Harrisburg.
