Shawnee Springs Farm
The name "Shawnee Springs" dates back to the late 1800's when the farm was over 2000 acres owned by Colonel Thompson. The original house that was on the property sat where the present farmhouse sits today. The farm was named from the natural spring, "Shawnee Springs" that is located to the West of The Farmstead's barn. Colonel Thompson and his family are buried in the stone cemetery that you can see to the left of the barn. The original homestead burned in the 1970's. In 1974, Shawnee Springs farm located at 761/765 Curry Pike was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Behind the house you can still see the original smokehouse and shed that are estimated to be well over 120 years old. The barn itself is estimated at approx. 105 years old and was originally a tobacco barn, turned horse barn.
