there in September of 1777. This historic house has a lot more to offer and boast of. One of these things that the William Brinton 1704 House can be proud of is its age. It has been standing on the same landscape for more than three centuries now, making it a true American historical structure. Its medieval style architecture is also of great note, as well as its leaded casement windows and the indoor bake oven.
The William Brinton 1704 House was restored to its original state in the 1950s.
