This historic house remains as it was and has become — a transitional early Colonial farmhouse which over many generations adapted to the cultural changes of American homes styles over three hundred years — from a pioneer one room house c.1709 to a ‘modern’ twelve room home it is today. A comfortable home which could be considered a museum of architectural styles from early Colonial, Federal, Georgian, Greek Revival, Victorian and ‘modern’ times.
Perhaps, the best example of “something old and something new” are the two kitchens in the house, the old pioneer keeping room (c. 1750s ), stone fireplace and baking oven, farm table and copper lined sink alongside the new modern kitchen ( 2008 ), digitized Jenn-Aire appliances, large refrigerator, six burner gas stove & grill, two ovens along a 22 foot granite counter top with a breakfast nook. Both kitchens sit side by side. The old kitchen now functions as a dining room.
Besides two kitchens there are two living rooms in the house, a Federal style and a Victorian style living room, off the center hall which sits between both rooms.
