Significance: Patented in 1780, the Norris Farm represents broad patterns in our nation's history. The farm illustrates the basic historical trends in the county beginning with early settlement and the granting of land by the colonial government in the late eighteenth century. It then traces the era of agricultural dominance during the nineteenth century, and, finally, this industry's eventual decline throughout the early and mid-twentieth century.
