Notes on property/project
DE CRS no. N05211. The A. M. Vail House was a two-story, five-bay, frame, late Federal-style house with a center-hall interior plan. Outbuildings included a smokehouse, crib barn and granary, cow barn, cow stalls, carriage barn, piggery, sheds, chicken house. The farm produced corn, butter, livestock early on, and then epxanded into oats, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and wheat, and orchard fruit. The cartshed was a good example of earthfast framing for later 19th century rural buildings. The dwelling and associated agricultural buildings were added to the National Register in the Rebuilding St. Georges Hundred nomination in 1985. The dwelling was demolished between 2007 and 2009.
