This mansion was built between 1911 and 1913; architect was Herman Miller for C.N. Myers, co-owner of Hanover Shoe Co. There are 13 rooms plus 3 baths, kitchen, solarium and a separate Carriage House which has been restored in 2015. The property sits on approximately one acre of lawn with mature trees. It was given to the Hanover Area Historical Society by J. William Warehime, a local businessman in 2007 and is used to illustrate the history of the house in the Myers' family era and in the Warehime era. It is handicap accessible.
The house is currently furnished in the eclectic taste of Bill Warehime, the second owner, and includes a large collection of Jasperware, cut glass, other art glass and 17 tall case clocks, both European and Pennsylvania-made. In 2016, the original 100-year old slate roof on the mansion was completely replaced with a new slate roof.
