The Farnsley-Kaufman House sits on the
campus of the Farnsley Middle School at 4816
Cane Run Road, near the intersection of Cane Run
Road and Lees Lane. In 1812, David Farnsley
built the log cabin portion of the house in
anticipation of his marriage to
Sarah Meriwether.

Our Vision

The Friends of the Farnsley Kaufman House aspires to enhance education, ignite the imagination, instill pride, and preserve heritage.

Our Mission

The Friends of the Farnsley Kaufman House tells the story of a House, its times and its people.

Our History

In 1832, the Farnsleys added the brick addition that is seen to the right of the original cabin. The Farnsley-Kaufman House as it exists today, in the 21st century, appears much as it did almost 190 years ago.
