Sitting on an opposite edge of the Prairiewood Preserve is the StoneHouse at Prairiewood. One of the most unique properties in the region, this was originally the Farmsted of Sam Kimble – one of the early settlers to the Manhattan area. With construction beginning in 1860, the hand-hewn timbers that roof this limestone complex were crafted before the Civil War! Today, the main house of this estate is available to rent for accommodations. Fully renovated in 2014, this property features unsurpassed elegance in its amenities, while celebrating the heritage of its past by leaving many of the original elements exposed: originally milled rafters, hand-hewn timbers, ancient limestone walls, wide-plank wood floors (with original square-head nails!), and antique walnut trim.
