    Default ⚰Funeral home in Northumberland to be auctioned off

    NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. The oldest building in Northumberland will soon be auctioned off, and it happens to be a funeral home.

    Jeffrey Dunkelberger has been an auctioneer for more than 30 years. He's auctioned off many items and buildings but says this listing in Northumberland is one of the more unique ones.

    "The home was built in 1772. It's the oldest property in Northumberland," said Dunkelberger. "It's been a funeral home since 1927."

    Should be a quick sale. People are just dying to get in there.

    Pretty cool old building. Does anyone know what this type of building architecture is called? In particular, the name for that type of roof...

    At 1772, it is 65 years before the official "Victorian era" which would have been my guess, so I am open to ideas on the architecture too.
