Long Description:
It is presumed that this home was built in the 1830's. There are two other cobblestone farmhouses in the Lima area that are similar in construction - the Morgan and Markham farmhouses.

The following is quoted from Carl Schmidt's Cobblestone Masonry:

Front end walls are fieldstones of various sizes, shapes, and colors laid three courses to a quoin height. They range from two to two and one-half inches in height and from three to five inches in length. A few large stones, which range from two and one-half by seven to three by eight inches, are scattered in the walls. Horizontal joints are about one inch wide and the verticals from one-half to one inch wide...The rear wall has larger fieldstones which are laid five courses to two quoins heights with small stones used as fillers under alternate quoins.
