    Woodwind's Farm | A treasure chest of history and stories, this grand home has evolved over generations of time. At its center is a 1700's log cabin with Civil War markings that was incorporated into the main Charleston-style structure during original construction back in the 1800's. Further additions in the 1900's create the lovely sprawling structure we see today.
