Samuel Fleming, born in Ireland in 1707, came to the present-day United States and worked nearby as a tavern master, and bought 210 acres in present-day Flemington as the site for a home in 1741 from Thomas Penn, son of William Penn, the founder of the Province of Pennsylvania. After the house was constructed in 1756, the area becoming known as “The Fleming Settlement”, then as “Fleming’s” and was known as “Flemington” by the 1870s. Fleming operated a tavern, often said to be in the house itself. Come and spend a leisurely afternoon touring this historic 18th century house and beautiful gardens. No reservations required.
