Furman, and a large barn built in the 1860's has passed ownership over the generations with more than 75 acres of land to Charles Carson, and has since been called The Carson Farm. This 1.45 acre property being sold is a section of this acreage and is adjacent to The Carson Road Woods, a 183 acre preserve of open space and 5 miles of nature trails.
