Inscription. In 1731 Tunis Cooper built the main section of this sandstone farmhouse which was inherited by his son Abraham. Circa 1812 Rulof C. Van Houton purchased the homestead and nearby saw and grist mill. The roof was raised and stone east wing added c. 1832. Subsequently the frame extension completed the structure. Seven generations of Van Houtons have continuously occupied the farm for about 175 years.
