St. Michaels Manor probably was built by James L. Richardson
about 1805. There is a brick in the house, formerly in a cornerstone, that says,

the Williamson Smiths, and the Viseks. In 1982 it was purchased by the present

in a graveyard in the woods, some 150 yards north of the manor, enclosed with
a wrought-iron fence. James Richardson died in 1824.
