Embracing Historic Roots

The rich history of 209 Mary Fitch Rd. adds a layer of intrigue and allure to this exceptional property. This land (and surrounding area) was the original homestead of Mary Fitch herself. On the hilltop was a wagon stop where travelers from all over would stop to water their horses and purchase food and supplies.  Known as the “news gatherer,” Mary would pass on news from previous travelers to all those who stopped by. 

First built in the mid-1800s, the home was destroyed by a devastating tornado around 1943. It was soon after rebuilt and recently updated from top to bottom with modern amenities and beautiful finishes to restore its modern farmhouse charm.
