Thanks for stopping by and listening to our second podcast! In this episode we try to get to the bottom of when Stony Ford was built, and who built it. In the pod cast I talk about some visuals, so check out the images below to see what we’re referencing.
When we were researching who owned Stony Ford before Charles Backman, we did find way more info than we expected. It surprised me for sure! We found out that a man named Louis Sutton was most likely the person who built Stony Ford and Backman enlarged the hotel to make a mansion.
Then we said, who owned the house before Sutton? We see a man named Joseph Bloom but the documents are too difficult to read so we can’t make out of a house was part of the purchase. Have a listen and tell us what you think!
Hi! First off, your house is heart-melting. Thank you for sharing, I look forward to seeing more!
Second… You may have come across this already, but http://fultonhistory.com/ is a fabulous resource for research. A little tough to get used to the search parameters at first, but unbelievable amounts of information. I usually start searching by address, then by people or events. Enjoy!
This site looks amazing! I can’t wait to give it a try. We have a big gap in the house history, so maybe this will help fill it in. Thank you so much!
