A present view of Bramwell's Historic McNeer House. According to some present sources the H.V. McNeer house may be the oldest home in Bramwell. Dr. McNeer bought it from the Bluestone Land Corp in 1889 for $1400.00, when lots were only selling for $300.00. Dr. R. M. McGuffin home (claimed by some people to be the oldest house in Bramwell) was not built in 1885 as previously reported. The center lot was not accuired until November 1887 for $300.00. It is doubtful that the home was completed until 1890. The written source is the Mercer County court records. Thus, these recently noted court records show that the Historic DR. R. M. McGuffin House may have been incorrectly reported to be the oldest frame house in Bramwell. Some writings have reported it to be the oldest house on Bramwell's "Main Street". Dr. H.V. Mcneer's house boasted the first indoor plumbing in town and had a free standing shower. It even had a windmill to help supply water, and there was a speaking tube from the front door to the Dr. McNeer's bedroom.
