32 Whig St, Newark Valley, NY 13811
This c.1870 Greek Revival has so much to love about it. The gardens, vintage lighting fixture, built-in, wide plank floors, country kitchen with farm sink, linoleum are calling my name. The octagon barn clinches it!
The home was built for farmer Samuel Smith Watson (1800-1885). He relocated from Massachusetts with his parents in 1810 and raised his children, Jane, Susan Bessie, William, Mary and Phebe in this house with his wife Jerusha Harmon Watson (1808-1883). Son-in-law Fred W. Richardson, husband of Phebe, built the octagonal barn sometime after their marriage in 1896.
