The Gresham-Turpin House

Samuel Gresham was the manager of a general store and Newtown’s postmaster when he built this house in 1845. Five families including that of John O. Turpin have owned the house. Mr. Turpin was a successful farmer and businessman, who served as Chairman of the King and Queen County Board of Supervisors from 1956 until his death in 1972.
