Sheldon House sits near the intersection of Falconer St. and Lakeview Ave. was built in 1860 and rebuilt in 1925. It was gifted for the benefit of JCC in 1977 by Julia Sheldon Livengood. The house functioned as a private residence through much of its history and has served as a guesthouse and facility for special events for nearly 40 years.
The property is assessed at $425,000.
