Jonathan Davison (1795-1865), a native of Livingston County, New York, purchased 160 acres of land here in 1831. His son John W. Davison, a farmer and carpenter, completed the rear portion of the present structure in 1855. He enlarged it to its present size in 1879. After his father's death in 1865, John acquired the property and built a barn, a dairy house and a large structure that contained a blacksmith and carpenter shop and a granary, In 1986 the 135-acre farm was still owned and operated by the Davison's descendants.
