Robert Gardner, Jr built this adobe home for his family in the winter of 1848 with a foundation of river stones that he carried from the nearby creek and set with hand-mixed cement.
Gardner built this home next to his sawmill along Mill Creek. The sawmill is now gone but the home remains. Located at 1475 E. Murphy's Lane in Millcreek, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has recently undergone a $1.5M renovation by the Gardner family. Interpretive signs are placed out front for visitors to learn more about the home.
