At the National Historic Site is the restored house of Thomas Stone signer of the Declaration of Independence and 322 acres of Haberdeventure, a “dwelling place in the winds”. The Stone family lived at Haberdeventure from 1770 until 1936, a total of six generations. When a fire destroyed much of the main house in 1977, the house had been continuously occupied for over 200 years. In addition to the house, the park contains outbuildings and the family cemetery.
