Hot off the press! Read the latest issue of our Quarterly, Dogwood Lane

Our spring issue of Dogwood Lane is hot off the press! We hope you will take some time to read this latest edition of our quarterly journal aimed at giving readers a greater appreciation of the ten generations of one inter-related family that fashioned this land from wooded hillsides 300 years ago to the historic estate and grounds that it is today. In 2018, the estate was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places as the Davenport Estate Historic District. In addition, this journal provides a deeper understanding of the larger social and political context in which these families lived their daily lives. This historical and biographical overview is based on the scholarly research by students and professionals who combed through the archives of the estate, tax documents and census records to learn of those who called the estate home.
