Other names: Fort Manor
A circa 1740 brick house was built here by Col. Henry Hooper. The two-foot thick walls of the original house were said to provide defense against possible Indian attack. The property was later owned by Col. Thomas Hughlett (1826-1896), a planter and Clerk of the County Court. This structure burned in 1934.
