House Tour - Chapman Farm ClubhouseAs we drive through our Crofton neighborhoods, we rarely think about their roots.  But once upon a time…

According to local historian Joseph L. Browne, the Chapman Farm community is located on a tract of land known in the 18th century as Darkness Converted into Light, and renamed Mt. Airey by the Williams family in the 19th century.  Mt. Airey was owned by Dr. William Gover Williams in 1895 when the home was rebuilt after a fire. His children sold the farm in 1917 to Joseph and Else Riedel, whose daughter Erna married Ray Chapman. Erna and Ray farmed the property until 1986, when they sold it to developers who re-built the home again for residents of the new Chapman Farm subdivision to use as a community center.

There are a limited number of tickets still available for the home tour, so don’t procrastinate!
