Jonas Aiken, the famous inventor, built the home in the mid 1800's. The front section of the home was moved up from the Lake and goes back to the late 1700's. Jonas Aiken often was host to prominent inventors such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone. Taking care to maintain the historical value of the Property, many renovations have been made. The original floors, wallpaper design, black walnut bookcases, etc., have been painstakingly preserved.
Webster Lake is named after Daniel Webster whose boat house is still on the property.
