Mountain View Farm features a Greek Revival-style brick farmhouse built by Charles Davidson about 1854 and a collection of farm buildings dating from the 19th to the early 20th century. Davidson and subsequent owner, progressive farmer, and local leader Rice Hotinger constructed the farm buildings, including a barn with an unusual interior silo and a blacksmith shop that is still fully outfitted. Hotinger’s daughter-in-law, Sara Lantz Hotinger, a social activist and the country’s first superintendent of public welfare, resided at the farm from the 1930s until her death in 1974.
