A Painesville master builder, Jonathan Goldsmith, built this house in Willoughby in 1831. He then lived there with his wife, Abigail, and their 10 children.
After Jonathan passed away, Abigail was determined to keep her home, so she turned the homestead into a boarding house and was then able to live comfortably off the rented rooms.
In 1887, Abigail was 100 years old and she passed away quietly in her home.
In 1973, the house was moved to Hale Farm.
Today, visitors have reported feeling the presence of Abigail Goldsmith. Her presence has been known to be a very welcoming, opening her doors for the weary traveler.
