2. Flint Farmhouse
Horace Kent and his son, Lewis, built the original house in 1882 at its present location on Midland Road. The Kents were famous for their peaches, which were grown in the Midland area. Horace left the house and 100 acres to his daughter Mary, who left the property to her husband, Ed Flint. In 1947, Stuart Fritzohn purchased the property. Extensive repairs were made to the house and property between 1947 and 1970. The house is an excellent example of a pre-Victorian era home, circa 1880.
