Shipley House (closed)

Formerly/Also Known As Wallace's Tavern, Skiles's Tavern, Shipley's Tavern, Bunting's Tavern, Messmore's Tavern

1203 National Pike
Hopwood, PA 15445

Now a private residence.

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

Next we come to the 'Shipley House.' Like all the tavern houses in Monroe, and nearly all the private houses, this is a stone building, and is two stories high. It was erected by E. W. Clement, and good workmanship displayed in its construction. It was kept awhile by Clement, and after him at different times by John Wallace, Archibald Skiles, Samuel Shipley, Redding Bunting, and Lindsey Messmore.
