Inscription.  The 1852 Stauber Farm represents Forsyth County's agrarian development in the mid-to-late 19th century. Samuel B. Stauber, a Moravian from nearby Bethania, became a prosperous farmer and by 1860 his 600-acre farm was among the largest in the region. The house reflects an architectural transition as German Moravian building customs were paired with the nationally popular Greek Revival style. The porch is a 20th-century modification. Extant outbuildings include the large barn across the road.
