Kent Manor Inn -Stevensville
This large country inn sits in the middle of a 226 acre tract once called Smithfield. The original wing of the inn (on the left) was constructed by Sarah Smyth and her husband, Dr. Samuel Thompson, a prominent local physician. A marriage contract, executed between Sarah and Samuel Thompson, allowed Sarah to retain control of her assets after their 1811 marriage. In 1843 Sarah gave the house and 309 acres to her son, who, just prior to the Civil War, added the large 13-room center section of the inn.
The land on which the National Register site Bloomingdale stands was originally patented in 1665 as Mount Mill. The Federal-style brick mansion, erected in 1792, is one of the finest in the county.
