The Cochran Davenport Farmstead

There’s History Around Every Bend Episode #2 – The Cochran Davenport Farmstead

The road literally bends around the land this iconic farmstead sits on, and the history that’s there. Today, it is one of the few remaining farmsteads that retains all of it’s 1880‘s era out buildings. The original house was built by George Cochran in 1885 who lived in the house with his family until around 1918. His nephew Press Davenport and his family moved into the home soon after and occupied the home until 1980. This is a story on the history of this historic farmstead rising like a phoenix to what is seen today, more than 125 years after it was first built.

Deja vu all over again…
