Robbins Hunter, Jr., son of a prominent Newark family, was a noted antiquarian, preservationist, and historian. Hunter saved the house, filled it with fine antiques, added the Victorian Woodhull mechanical clock tower and the eccentric Octagon Room before leaving the property to be operated as the Robbins Hunter Museum and Gardens. His gravestone reads, "I loved Licking County.
