Homer New York - Briggs-Hall Memorial Home - Historic House

Built in 1825, this red brick mansion was once the home of William Sherman. He was credited with making the first massed produced nails in NY. The Briggs' purchased the property in the 1870s to be used as a funeral home. The front of the house is original. A middle section was added in 1890 and a rear section was added 40 years later. The house served as a funeral home until 2011. After that it was purchased to be used as a banquet hall (the Manor at Briggs Hall) with a catering service. Today there is a restaurant (Shermans) located inside as well. The building retains its magnificent winding staircase, Victorian chandeliers and other historic features. Located at 11 North Main Street in Homer, NY. 279
