Kennedy Stone House Museum

Salt Fork State Park, Off of Road 4

In 1837, the Irish and Scottish ancestors of Benjamin Kennedy purchased an 80-acre tract of land in Guernsey County and commissioned the construction of a large two-story house from native sandstone quarried nearby. Don Kennedy, great-grandson of the builder, occupied it until 1966. The State of Ohio purchased the Kennedy property and surrounding lands to create Salt Fork State Park. Today, the house is nestled in the woods, overlooking the lake. The Kennedy Stone House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
