Description
Hard to spot in the summertime as its view is obstructed by trees, this house sits far back on the property.

The property was purchased in 1840 by Andrew Lapp. The house has been handed down through several generations of Lapps, though I'm not sure who owns it at the present time.

Andrew Lapp grew tobacco on his farm, which he dried and cured for his own use. He would make it into plugs which he had such a penchant to chew that his teeth were worn down on one side from the tobacco. He apparently ran from the field one day claiming he was being chased by the devil. Andrew must have been quite a colourful character.
