Two large stone chimneys are all that remain of the Gwin Dudley Home Site, one of the best-known historic sites in Franklin County. Gwin Dudley was rewarded with a land grant for service and loyalty to the United States during the Revolutionary War, and settled in central Franklin County where he prospered as a farmer.
