Built in the late 1700s, this was Mr Livingston's main home. This now 5,000 Square foot home started out smaller and then was expanded as the years went on. This property also had a smaller home which was considered the slaves quarters. The 500+ acre property he owned was a striving agricultural location for the area. Mr Livingston was a famous and popular man for the area in that era. He was featured in many papers and was president of many clubs. In the late 1900s, the property sold to a private boys school. When the school owned it, they rented out the properties to other families. In 1984, this entire property was listed as an historical site due to it long history and was put on the national historical registry. In the year 2000, the school decided to put the property up for sale. People renting the homes had to leave b/c of this. A developer bought the land with intents to demolish and rebuild but b/c the property is on the national historical registry, they can not tear it down. The current developer has left the house to rot. Probably to let it fall down so they can now build
