Veraestau is a historic home located in Center Township, Dearborn County, Indiana. It was built in 1838, and is a two-story, Greek Revival style brick and frame dwelling. It incorporates an earlier brick extension to the original 1810 log cabin that burned in 1838. A two-story addition was built in 1913, and a three-room brick addition to it in 1937. Also on the property are the contributing stable and carriage house (1937), Indian mound, family cemetery, and the remains of a kiln. The original house was built by Jesse Lynch Holman (1784-1842). Veraestau was also the birthplace of his son Congressman William S. Holman (1822-1897) and home of his son-in-law Allen Hamilton (1798–1864), who built the 1838 house.
