Hi, Yes this is the same place,The Blake family bought this from the Murrays. The Old Murray's Inn burned down. and the Blakes build a huge rock house near the same spot. and called it the Meadows. It is listed with the Historical Register. It is still standing. Mr. Blake gave to his son and daughter in law some of the land and build a house similar to the Meadows across the road, and called it (Meadow View), It's still standing. Lot is written about the Blakes They came from Sc area. I live near it.If you would like more info.,Let me know.
