Ketchum-Wheeler Homestead-1756*


This home is on the right hand side of Route 17A heading west as you pass Ketchum Road. It no longer resembles the photo because the upper frame part had been remodeled many years ago. The stone foundation is still there to see. It was believed to have been built by Samuel and Phillip Ketcham in 1756 and bought by the Wheeler family in 1800. About 1850 William Wheeler built a larger home known today as the Peach Grove Inn
