From the Zillow listing:


The oldest building in Deposit, NY, built in 1799. "The Rookery Tavern" and most recently "Axtell Antiques", is a Federal style, commercially zoned and riverfront, having about 50′ frontage on the West Branch Delaware River. It also has 433′ frontage on 3 different streets and over 1/2 acre of land. The building has several fireplaces and a collection of many beautiful antique features such as doors, hardware, tavern bar, windows, floors, hitching post and more. It needs work (its 223 years old) but might make an ideal Air BnB or fishing related business location or even a private riverfront home. Completed just eleven years after the ratification of the United States Constitution, this is your opportunity to own a true piece of authentic Colonial America!
