Inscription.  Built by Asa Thomas, is the oldest structure in the town of Milton. It was built in the 1783. Romulus Saunders, Ambassador to Spain, once traded Longwood Plantation and 1500 acres to purchase Fairview in order to entertain dignitaries. Although exterior is considerably altered interior contains the most Adamesque Federal style woodwork in the county. The home is largely supported by a brick on brick (no mortar) foundation. Five generations of Thomas's call this home.
