just another dying farmhouse along 202

When you are headed on 202 south, just before the light at 926, there is a farmhouse or two. The one right on the corner of 926, still looks inhabited but the one before the corner ? It’s falling apart literally.

I thought maybe this old farmhouse was a Crebilly house. My sources however tell me that it is not part of Crebilly but at one time Crebilly did try to acquire it.

I would love to know the history if anyone knows. It’s in really bad shape.

Here is it’s barn or similar kind of structure:

Here are some closeups and other photos I was able to get of bits of the house as a passenger going by:

  1. It’s funny that your source said it wasn’t part of Crebilly because the lawyer for “Neighbors for Crebilly brought up the fact that two other houses as well as an old fruit stand that once belonged to the Bartram family were razed. (I wanted to see if I could get the fruit stand moved but it seems they did this overnight.) The lawyer asked Toll’s lawyers how they were allowed to do this but they said they didn’t know anything about it. This was before a tree fell on another Crebilly house on Rt. 926. The roof is still not repaired on the house but at least someone cleared away the tree.. This discussion came up when they were planning an access road to the Toll development including turn-abouts and widening Rt. 202.
    They also discussed moving the the serpentine stone “tavern” at Rt. 202 and 926. (Darlington’s Corners.) I know that the red house was occupied until very recently… I found this on the web but nothing about Darlington’s Corners being on the National Register (It comes up in some places but must have been removed.” Someone wrote this
    history: We must keep moving because my fuel is running short. I see G. Maurice (pronounced Morris) Bartram has opened a fruit stand at the southwest corner of Darlington Corners. It will be moved twice, in 1943 to the southeast corner of the intersection, when his son J. Hibberd Bartram will inherit the business and yet again in 1952 to the northeast corner, where it will remain, along with a second-hand book store, until the 1980s when an Acme supermarket will be built on the site.
