Seven generations of the Hubbell family have since occupied this farm.

His son, John D. Hubbell, was a farmer, Old School Baptist minister, and entrepreneur.

His grandsons, Will and Burr, were farmers, inventors, and businessman, founding Hubbell Brothers, a retail business which sold cars, building materials, hardware, and many other items for over a century at this location.

Today a family business continues to be run from this location.

Buildings on this location date from the early 1800s up through the late 1900s.

Surrounding farm land reflects late 19th and early 20th century land use patterns.
