Six generations of the same family, spanning three centuries spent their
lives at this home and farm. From the days of Colonial rule through the
Industrial Revolution, the Civil War and on through the World Wars. The home,
built by Stephen Waters in 1757, is filled with history in every corner, from
the beehive oven to the wrought iron castings or whale oil lamps. Each room
brings you back to times almost forgotten but kept intact through the generous
donor Dorothea Waters Moran, last descendant of Stephen Waters.
