General Elisha Boyd purchased the land and completed the house upon it in 1812, at which time the Boyd family moved into the estate. General Boyd’s daughter Mary became the home’s next owner in 1841 upon her father’s death. Electricity was put into the home around 1890. Mary Boyd married Charles Faulkner, who purchased the land from his wife, and the Faulkner family owned the house and surrounding property until 1958. The house underwent minor renovations during this time, including the addition of a back porch in 1914 and the replacement of the Georgian front portico in 1900 with a long front porch.
