“Historic Pennsylvania Fox Family Estate”
One of the East Coast’s most historic properties, with ties to the founding of the Quaker religion and a young Benjamin Franklin, the Riverstone Estate in Foxburg, Pennsylvania is for sale. The town is named after James Fox, brother of Quaker-founder George Fox who purchased 5,000 acres from William Penn in 1685. The Fox family had vast investments, business holdings and wealth and employed hundreds including Benjamin Franklin as a young accountant. In the early 1800s, the family began to build their extensive homestead legacy at the confluence of the Clarion and Allegheny Rivers in western Pennsylvania as their summer home from their native Philadelphia. The entire estate on six miles of river frontage totals 26 structures with several mansions, one-of-a-kind carriage house, greenhouse, timber-stone cottage, chicken house, sugar house for the estate’s maple syrup, equestrian center, several barns including a sheep and an alpaca barn, an aviary and the commonwealth’s first complete arboretum. The grounds are equally extensive with 23 ponds, onsite gray-stone walls, miles of trails and a cemetery where members of the Fox family are buried. The entire compound is priced at $15 million. The listing agent is Randy Jelliff of Jelliff Auction and Realty, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.
