Postcard with image of the Stonehouse, Governor William King's farm, believed to be built about 1812.
This unusual stone farmhouse, the earliest known example of Gothic Revival architecture in the state, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The land King and his wife, Ann Frazier King, purchased in 1802 was just part of his extensive purchases of local real estate during the first ten years of the eighteenth century. From this farm, King exported produce, largely apples and potatoes, on his fleet of merchant vessels.
