71 Stony Kill Road has a long history. In 1669 Mary queen of England granted approximate 400 acres to the Davenport family. The established a modest homestead. A Dutch home and barn were built during the pre-industrial revolution. Unfortunately the home was lost to a fire in 1979, you can still see the stone foundation. The diary barn was converted to a home in 1984. 20 acres remained landlocked with a class A trout stream running trough the pastoral setting. Tim Ganon, the current owner of the farm, bought the property on July 11, 1984.
