History

Over two hundred years ago, when George Washington was president, Captain Kinne, along with his wife and children, started the farm. Over the course of two generations, it grew into a large and prosperous homestead and included grain farming, timber harvesting, quarrying, milling, and other enterprises as well. Today, several remaining small and large outbuildings are still standing. They include barns, a smokehouse, a millhouse, and a corn crib, among others. Our guests are free to roam around the spacious grounds and explore these treasured pieces of history.
