Backstory and Context
The property on which the farmstead sits was once part of a the John Holcombe plantation according to his will dating back to 1742. The last two owners, Milo and Rachel Jimison, donated the farmstead to the Hunterdon County Historical Society in 1968. Eventually, in 1984 it was deeded to the Holcome-Jimison Farmstead, Inc.
