Gillet Beer Farm


Peter & Sally Gillett moved to Warren Township from New York in 1832, buying 82 acres of land from the government. Part of the current house was built before 1840. Peter sold a portion of the land to the First Methodist Episcopal Church in 1845 as a burial ground, deeding other parts to his children. By 1875, this property was owned by F. Van Fleet, the Kidds in 1895 and the Bates in the 1930’s. Art and Agnes Beer bought it in 1946. The Agnes E. Beer Junior High School was named in her honor in 1969.
