A converted barn that was once part of the property next door. This home is rumored to have served as an orphanage. It was also the home of the town doctor. A curious fire pit in the yard has initial carvings. Also on the property are the ruins of a possible springhouse or ice house. The owner has quite a treasure trove of findings, keys, coins, door locks and more. The barn is built in the traditional bank barn style, the lower level has a huge stone fireplace that keeps the whole house cozy in the wintertime.

Mt. Airy Lavender Farm
This one tugs at our heart strings. We were contacted to research a family farm that was purchased in 1971. Five siblings want to have their parents’ farm researched to pay tribute to their family and time on the farm. After their parents purchased the property in the late 1960's, they lovingly restored the home, barns and springhouse. They also endured a seven year eminent domain battle. Luckily the take over was overturned and as they say, “the rest is history”, literally! The family also runs a thriving Lavender Farm on the property. We can’t wait to go visit in season. We will keep you updated and as always, thank you for following along!
