Grumblethorpe, built in 1744, was the summer residence of John Wister. It is an outstanding example of early 18th-century architecture. Some of its interesting features include double front entrances, balconies on the front and back of the building, pent eaves, and stone coursing on the façade. Visitors can tour this beautifully restored home and admire its period furnishings. A historic garden is being recreated on the premises to honor the Wister family's longstanding love of horticulture.
