Our History

Jacob Morrell of New Jersey drew lot 51 as thanks for his service in the American Revolution. He and his son Charles settled on the Lansing property in 1808. They began raising sheep and reportedly had 2000 head at one time.

Being a wealthy aristocrat, Charles became tired of life in the wilderness and built himself a fine house now known as Lamppost B & B.

His daughter Louisa, married Benjamin Ledyard Cuyler, the grandson of General Benjamin Ledyard of Aurora , New York. When she became a young widow, she took her four year old son, Theodore Cuyler, to live with her father in Lansing.

Theodore grew to become a world famous Presbyterian divine, his career stemming from a speaking engagement at the nearby Ludlowville Lesson House.He went on to oversee construction of the Lafayette Ave. Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, New York which, under his leadership, became the largest Presbyterian church in the United States.
