Inscription. Peter & Sally Gillett moved to Warren Township from New York in 1832, buying 82 acres of land from the government. Part of the current house was built before 1840. Peter sold a portion of land to the First Methodist Episcopal Church in 1845 as a burial ground, deeding other parts to his children.

By 1875, this property was owned by F. VanFleet, the Kidds in 1895 and the Bates in the 1930s.

Art & Agnes Beer bought it in 1946. The Agnes B. Beer Junior High School was named in her honor in 1969.
