Cherry Creek Watershed

The "Old Stone House" on Cherry Valley Road is a local landmark, built in 1734 by Aaron Depui, son of the area's earliest known settler Nicholas Depui, along with an adjacent springhouse. A stone addition to the house and the garage were added in the 1950's. It served as a tavern and restaurant for a brief period after World War I. Aaron was the surviving member of twins (his brother was killed by Indians) who established the first store in the area, in Shawnee in 1743 that he operated until his death in 1785. He purchased supplies from Philadelphia while his father had purchased supplies from the New York area.
