"A farm house was erected in 1869. It was of brick, two stories high, 33x42 feet. It was occupied by the farm foreman, and the men employed in farm and garden labor. The cottage formerly occupied as a farm house was entirely to small to afford the requisite accomoddations."[1]

1900
"In 1900, I think, when the site of the farm house was much needed for a dairy building , it was moved about twenty rods to the southeast, where a smaller building once stood, known as the herdsman's house. The brick farm house for some years past and at present time has been used by the foreman of the farm and his family. Previously the herdsman's house had been moved to the north and a little east, where it has been occupied by the foreman of the horticultural department." [2]
