Just beyond the intersection of Old Hebron Ave and Old Coop Road, the ruins of an ancient house sit under a thicket, though when the house was built, neither road included the “old”. As of 1934, the house still stood (seen below) but it was likely torn down or abandoned shortly after since there’s a fairly large tree growing out of the foundation.

This map claims the house was built in 1720 and in 1874, the house was owned by I. Goslee.

The foundation is still intact with the base of the center chimney visible. Across the street is a large barn, likely owned by I. Goslee as well. There are also a pair of smaller foundations behind the house. Between the house and rockwall was a well.
