Shapley Ross House

The Shapley Ross House is a traditional two-story limestone residence that is a unique example of superb stonework masonry and Georgian-styled architecture in Missouri, with 10-foot ceilings and 18-inch walls. On each floor, "nine over nine" windows enclose two big rooms divided by a wide central hallway and an elegant staircase with a delicate walnut handrail. Each end of the house has a chimney, and the four fireplaces still have their original carved mantels. The hand-carved woodwork and six-panel doors, odd-width flooring, and linen press closets are all original to the house.

The Lincoln County Genealogical Society currently calls the Shapley Ross House home.
