1800 Brick House 1963
————
John and James Richardson settled at the crossroads of two Indian trails in the early 1800's, building a log structure to be used for a tavern. The people fleeing from the burning of Buffalo, in 1813, took refuge here. DeWitt Clinton and his party stayed here in 1815 on his way to Batavia, to discuss plans for the Erie Canal.

The original tavern burned about 1813. The Richardsons constructed a new house of brick, from red clay they found on the farm, about 1831.

In 1962 the property was sold to the School District for the construction of a new Junior Senior High School. The brick building was leveled in 1963.
