1. Sand Hill Road and Route 94 Marker
Inscription. In 1799 Peter Tompkins kept an inn and tavern in a former tailor shop at this corner. Sometime after 1811, when Vernon Turnpike (Route 94) was incorporated, the Stewart House was built next door. In the mid 1800's the inn was removed and the house enlarged toward Sand Hill Road. Named Willow Tree Farm, a large ell was added by the Truesdell family in 1907. The Stewart House now sits across Sand Hill Road having been moved from this location in 2010.
