Olney HouseThis springhouse was constructed as an outbuilding of the Olney House (circa 1800). This one was restored and preserved by the Buffingtons in 2003. Before the invention of electric refrigeration, springhouses were common throughout rural areas and were used for preservation of food and dairy products. The Olney House and its outbuildings were associated with the Brooke-Farquhar family from approximately 1822 through 1925.
