This circa 1719 house was built by a descendent of Adam Thoroughgood on the property of the original Adam Thoroughgood Land grant. The house was built by Adam’s great-grandson, Argall Thoroughgood. Argall died during the construction and his wife Susannah completed the house. His son John also added elements to the house.
