The 1801 Armstrong House is owned by my brother David, and I assist in hosting it on vacation rental websites. It is our childhood home. 1801 ARMSTRONG HOUSE HISTORY: Welcome. Built in 1801, the Armstrong House is one of the oldest houses in Madison County’s Chenango Valley, part of the homeland of the Oneidas of the Iroquois Nation. The house was built by Captain Daniel Wheeler, who as a teenager fought for freedom in the American Revolution. He later mustered out and settled here with his family, and in 1797 with his brother Captain Elisha Wheeler, constructed the first stone grist mill on the Chenango River, just upstream from the Armstrong Road bridge. The old mill played a key role in sustaining local settlers with corn meal, mash, and flour, and operated for nearly one hundred years. Faint traces of the mill foundation can be seen near the banks of the Chenango, and the old millrace parallels the feeder canal. Most of the stones from the mill were taken away and re-used in foundations for other barns and houses. On Christmas Day, 1806, Captain Wheeler suffered a terrible accident. While he was chopping the ice free from the mill’s waterwheel, he slipped and was caught and mangled by the wheel, and then pitched into the icy river. Hearing his cries for help, his family ran down to the mill and pulled him from the freezing water. Several days later, he died from his injuries and pneumonia, leaving his wife and children to carry on. Captain Wheeler was buried in the cemetery along Armstrong Road, on your way to town. His brother Elisha is there with him. The legend my folks told differs slightly from the historical account that appears in the History of Madison County, published in 1872. The written history turned out to be more gripping and extensive. A copy of that story, and other stories of the early pioneer settlers of the Chenango Valley are contained in the notebook on the cherry table. I recommend you read it during your visit. A few years later, Mrs. Wheeler sold the place to a young Jabin Armstrong. Armstrong was a wagon wright and carpenter who ran his business out of the barn’s workshop until about 1850. He left behind his original ledgers that recorded all of his transactions from 1809 to 1849. His customers included many of the original settlers of Hamilton and Lebanon. He built and fixed a lot of wagons and carriages, and made quite a few coffins too. Some copies from those accounts are contained in the notebook. They show many transactions consisted of bartered goods and services with assigned dollar values, giving historians a clearer sense of the fledgling economy. Whiskey was a good liquid asset. The Armstrong’s lived here a long time. But they eventually lost the farm to the Bank in the agricultural depression of the 1920s. Like some other farmers, they had switched from milk cows back to growing hops, anticipating the end of Prohibition. Between the lingering hops blight, the Crash of ’29, and the Great Depression of the 1930s, even beer drinking took some time to recover. The Bank rented the property to a series of poor tenant farmers. The Blinebry’s bought it and lost it back to the Bank. The place was falling down. In 1950, the farm was bought by my folks, Harry and Betty Behler. It consisted of the house, two barns (one collapsed in a wind storm a few years later), and about 70 acres of mostly bottomland, the river, and feeder canal. The price was twenty four hundred dollars. There was a hand pump in the living room fed from the drywell and the original clay cistern down in the cellar, a big Ben Franklin stove, a hardscrabble kitchen, the outhouse off the back (a two-seater), and a large historic mound of trash strewn down the canal bank that contained more than a few old empty liquor bottles. But they were young and full of energy and they fixed it up, raised a family of four children. Betty taught art and gym in the Hamilton, Madison, and Stockbridge public schools. Harry taught Political Science and directed parliamentary debate at Colgate, and worked with many labor unions as a mediator and advisor. They both devoted their energies to social change through electoral politics. Together, they made some pretty good music. Betty played the autoharp and Harry the guitar, and they both sang. In the mid ‘50s, they won the New York State Grange’s folk singing contest and got to appear on the Arthur Godfrey radio show down in New York City. They turned down a recording contract and kept their day jobs. And for that, we’re thankful. The children —Stephanie, David, Mathew, and me —moved them to town in late 2007 and they moved to live with John in 2010. Harry died in March 2011 at the age of 89, and we left a bit of his story in the notebook. Betty passed in March 2014 at age 88. We miss them both very, very much. David bought The 1801 Armstrong House from our parents in 2008 and embarked on restoring the farmhouse assisted by his wife Cassandra, our young nephew John Wesley Butler, and two high school friends (and true 315ers): Craig Crouch, a skilled carpenter and Doug Keith, his able assistant. Our goal is to keep the farm in the Behler family for future generations to share and make memories. And to share it with you folks, who we believe will appreciate the place, a chance to experience a piece of history, and some fine country living. We hope your stay is both pleasing and memorable.
