This dwelling, near the junction of Neck and Center Bridge Roads, was built in 1831 for Joseph Breck, who was the superintendent of the Lancaster Horticultural Gardens and founder of the Breck Seed Company. It is also very near the site of the early Cyprian Stevens garrison. The feathered elm was one of the largest of its kind in the area. At one point, it measured 18 feet in circumference, just 5 feet from the base.
