Built before 1810. The farm was located on what is now the intersection of Duryea Road and Rte. 110. The site was on the Northeast corner of the intersection. The property consisted of approx. 110 acres and their principal crop was potatoes.

    Pictured her is he home of my grandparents Whitson & Ella Duryea.
    My father Forest Duryea was born in this home as was 7 other brothers and sisters. His date of birth was in 1910 and the home was reported to be over a 100 years old at that time.

    Thanks for your interest.
