.The Oldest House is believed to have been built in the mid 1780s for The James Smith family, early settlers to the Wyoming Valley and what would later become Wyoming County. What started out as two 300 acre lots over the years were divided and sold and eventually became part of the town of Laceyville. The property exchanged hands several times during the early 1800s.In 1844 Paul Lacey purchased the home and it remained in the Lacey family for three generations.The Morrisons and their grandchildren(1944-1970) were the last to use the home as a private residence. After serving the community as an Antique Shop for a brief time the Laceyville Area Historical Society was formed and the house has been a community treasure ever since. The House is open weekends from May thru the first week end of September. There are four major events held each year and tours from 1-4 every Friday,Saturday and Sunday as long as volunteers are available.
