Step back in time for a moment and enjoy the country ambiance and stately grandeur of this
singularly impressive historic property. The former Ruben G. Wright farmstead is a delightful,
albeit uncommon synthesis of 19th-century craftsmanship and estate living with 21st-century
infrastructure and modern conveniences.! This 6,964 sq. ft. 3-story Queen Ann Style estate was
built between 1883-1884 by Reuben Gridley Wright and remained in the Wright family for over
130 years. While the farmland has remained in continuous production throughout the Wright
family’s tenure, the main residence was not used as the family’s primary residence for over 50
years. In 2016, new owners purchased the property and, after extensive refurbishment, opened
a bed & breakfast business along with maintaining the estate home as their primary residence.
The totality of the property is truly remarkable: 78.46 bucolic acres nestled substantially within
the village boundaries and ready access to all community resources and municipal
infrastructure. Nearly all of the land is tillable; 72 acres are cultivated grain fields with intact
drainage tile. Approximately 6 acres encompass the farmstead and include a 1-acre
garden/orchard and stately grounds featuring a diverse mix of native and non-native
hardwoods and shrubs. In addition to the main residence, the farmstead includes a 2,048 sq. ft.
tenant house (currently occupied by the widow of the former caretaker), and the original 3-level
bank barn and an equipment shed out-building. In 1978 the main residence and primary barn
were added to the National Registry of Historic Places owing to the architectural and cultural
significance of the property. Ruben Gridley Wright’s vision and his family’s stewardship of the
property were an investment in enduring value. This home offers a truly once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to participate in the continuing legacy of this amazing property.
