Coulbourn Farm History:
The farm was put together with three Land Patents dated 1728 to 1762, called Timothey’s Point, Hogg Quarter, and Sturges Addition, later referred to as Wickenoughs Neck, Common Garden, and Castlegreen. It's now called Coulbourn, as it was the period name of the surrounding area. The Maryland Route 354 running through the farm was built in 1932. Prior to that, the driveway continued on straight to what is now known as Shockley Road. The farm was once home to a passage across the Pocomoke River, known as Gibbons’ Crossing. Mr. Sydney and Mrs. Eloise Cropper bought the land from Mr. William Laws, settling around Christmas time in 1958. In December of 1958, Mrs. Laws was ill, and Mr. Laws, wanting to spend more time with her in Philadelphia, decided to sell the farm to Sydney and Eloise. That winter, the corn crib was brimming with corn, the barn full of hay. Mr. Laws assured his continued access to those stored crops by specifying so in the deed, and went to Philadelphia to be with his wife. The Croppers kept the as they bought it, and as it stands today.
The Barn was originally built in the early 1900’s and likely housed dairy facilities. The original loft floor was on a level about a foot over head-height, Mr. Cropper removed the original loft, relocating it about 20’ overhead in 1971. Today, as the loft would be restricted from use, it was decided to remove it entirely, providing a completely open space above. A service room for storage or food prep and bathroom facilities were added in the winter of 2019-20. Maximum Occupancy of the Barn (Coming Spring 2020) is 99; able to bear mid to large functions with ease.
The House was originally built in the early 1800’s, the three-bedroom home was kept with the times over the years. A fourth bedroom was added on the northeast corner in the late 60's.
There is a Studio on the barnyard being converted for the groomsmen’s hang, it will be ready for use in 2021.
Other outbuildings in the barnyard, the Stables, Corn Crib, Potato Shed, and Equipment Shed, all ca. early 1900’s, have been kept up with regular coats of paint, and are ready to use as backdrops for pictures.
The Yards and Paddock are available for use for tented events and ceremonies. The Paddock is a fenced area between the Stables and the Barn.
