The Samuel Heald House was built in 1743 by Carlisle minuteman Samuel Heald and his wife Rebecca Fletcher.
In 1784 the house was severely damaged by a fire in which Samuel Heald and his son John lost their lives.
The house was rebuilt and expanded over the years. In 2001 the Carlisle Historical Society purchased Heald House to save it from demolition, and today it is home to the Carlisle Historical Society and Health House Museum.
