On New Salem Road, County Route 25. During the Revolutionary War, when the British burned Kingston in 1777, this house was not harmed because it was obscured by a dense growth of trees. In later years, John Freer lived here. He ran the gristmill, operated a ferry to Eddyville across the Rondout Creek, and was Freerville’s first mayor. Current Owner is John Zerbo who has lived there since 1996.
On Route 32 north. Built by Hugo Freer, Jr. in the late 1700’s There were five stone houses built by Freers in what was known as Bontecoe and Half Moon. The names of Jacob, Jacob, Jr., Hugo, Jr., Hugo III, and Abraham are associated with these houses. These houses are still, for the most part, inhabited, and some have been extensively renovated. If you’re driving by, be careful about slowing down, as the roads are narrow and drivers fast.
