The building was part of a ten acre estate with carriage house, tool shed, vineyard, garden and orchard. The Mynderse Family lived there until 1875 when Mrs. Leroy Partridge purchased the house and began an extensive remodeling and updating that changed the two story dwelling into the three story, 23 room, Queen Anne Style home that you see today.

Former family members, Historical Society staff and psychic mediums believe there are three ghosts that reside in the house. The original owner Edward Mynderse is a ghost that doesn’t like change in the house and sometimes plays tricks on staff or let his presence known. A former nanny is believed to be heard walking around on the third floor. Also a young Irish girl is heard crying on a back stairways, possibly upset about wanting to return to her home country.
