History
Originally owned by Johannes Van Epps in the early 1700s, the land was sold to Volney Freeman, builder of Freeman's Bridge. Generations of Seeley family members owned the little farmhouse between 1851 and 1956, before the Murray's purchased the house and turned it into Little Richard's Tavern. It became The Waters Edge Lighthouse in 2005, when the Popolizio's renovated the historic building that features elements of Georgian, Federalist and Greek revival architecture.
