Young House

Young house.jpg

This house was built in the 1780s by James Young on the site of the temporary log cabin erected in 1705 by his ancestor Jonathan young. It is the third house on the same site as the second one burned and this third one was erected about 1780.

This property has never been out of the family since 1705.

The old dining room is very large and there are about twelve rooms in the house exclusive of the attic.

This land was granted to Thomas Young in 1696.
