    This was originally the farm of John Heslop (1807-1881), an Englishman who was in the area by the 1830’s, and it’s possible the house is somewhat older than the 1862 date. Heslop accumulated a farm of over 300 acres that remained with his heirs well into the 20th century. The Gilbert family, descendants of Abijah Gilbert who founded nearby Gilbertsville in 1797, have owned the house and property for many years.
    On the ridge just south is the Bostwick estate known as Centennial Farm, and the adjacent Tianderah mansion:

      Wow, talk about craftsmanship in the Tianderah mansion! The setting, stonework, woodwork, plasterwork, everything! The attention to detail! There are many house styles I love, some I’m meh about, but when either are designed and built to this standard I can appreciate all the thought and work that went into them. Just beautifully done and maintained. interesting link and history, thank you for posting it

    I can’t stop giggling … “Butternuts” is the best town name I’ve heard in a while. I’m so terribly immature ??

    I love Butternuts! Beautiful houses here, and a nice area not too far from Oneonta. Great price for all that land!
