(Continued)

Syndicated —

New York

838 Route 9d, Garrison NY

For sale: $4,950,000

Built: 1750

New York was the site of nearly a third of the Revolutionary War battles. Situated across the Hudson River from the West Point Military Academy, Garrison is home to this barn-turned-modern estate. The 18th-century barn sits on nearly 8 acres of land surrounded by conservation easements.

Pennsylvania

217 Spruce St, Philadelphia PA

For sale: $1,695,000

Built: 1758

William Penn, Pennsylvania's namesake, received land from King Charles II to settle a debt in 1681 and immediately sailed to the New World to set up his colony. Continuing along the historic thread, this townhouse in Philadelphia is also historically significant, as it was first owned by Maj. David Lenox, who fought in the Revolutionary War.

Georgia

900 N Cave Spring St, Cedartown GA

For sale: $575,000

Built: 1800

The last colony was founded some 50 years after the other 12 by James Oglethorpe, a prison reformer who wanted to ease crowded British prisons with new ones in the colonies. This home for sale in Cedartown is nothing close to a prison. The elegant plantation-style 4-bedroom, 3-bath home has formal dining and drawing rooms.
