"WOOD PARK" off Courthouse Road, was formerly the home of J.N. Hubbard. The house is thought to have been built in the 1740's or 50's. An article in the Daily Press dated 12 Aug 1962 describes a cemetery as in the middle of a nearby corn field where a large cherry tree once stood. The article mentioned that there were three graves, now unmarked, belonging to the Munford family. Possibly buried here are members of the Robert H. Munford and Binns families. Ambrose White Binns sold "Wood Park" on 26 Jan 1883 to James E. Hubbard. The story has been told that Mr. Munford, being quite ill and looking out the window, requested to buried under the cherry tree, then in full bloom, growing in the nearby field. It is said his wish was fulfilled.
