To local historians, this property is known as the Mitchell Farmhouse. In 1802, James Mitchell left his home in NJ to inspect a property he had inherited near Montreal. Along the way,he stayed and admired the Village of Ithaca, then a few houses on the hill above Cayuga Lake. He promptly sold his inheritance & returned to Ithaca, purchasing the 600 acre parcel from Richard Pew now known as the Belle Sherman neighborhood. 609 Mitchell Street was built for & occupied by Mr. Mitchell & his extended family.
