Rossman Manton Farm

I moved to the Rossman Manton Farm in ’98.  I have a picture of the old house and the barn.  The barn is referred to in #5 on the Mills and Dams page.  It is a very early mill and was moved to the present site well more than a hundred years ago.  Pretty amazing if you see the size of the timbers in it.

The house was built in a number of sections the earliest of which goes back to the earliest days of Stephentown from what I understand.  the house had no running water or septic.  There was a two-seater off the back of the attached woodshed if you know what i mean.  It has since fallen off.  Rossman lived in it until about ’91. I wouldn’t have lived in it as a ghost!
