View From Winds Farm

Description

This is a photograph taken by J. Percy Crayon from an area of Denville formerly known as Pigeon Hill. It was taken outside of William Winds' original home in New Jersey. Historians have been able to place Winds in the area in his early twenties sometime in the late 1740s or early 1750s. The general later moved to present-day Randolph (which, at the time, was part of Mendham Township).

Later owners of the house include Joseph Percy Crayon - an early Denville Township schoolteacher and amateur historian who compiled a genealogy of early Morris County families (including the Winds family). The house was bought from Crayon in 1908 by the Cobb family who still owns the house today.
