History
Originally owned by Johannes Van Epps in the early 1700s, the land was sold to Volney Freeman, builder of Freeman's Bridge. Generations of Seeley family members owned the little farmhouse between 1851 and 1956, before the Murray's purchased the house and turned it into Little Richard's Tavern. It became The Waters Edge Lighthouse in 2005, when the Popolizio's renovated the historic building that features elements of Georgian, Federalist and Greek revival architecture.

This was the first (and last) place we looked at when figuring out where we should get married. The Terrace had everything we were looking for! Beautiful outdoor setting, a gorgeous reception area and ... Read more and several packages to choose from (all of which were extensive yet still budget friendly). Rit and his team did not miss a beat the entire night! The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the room decor (all set up by Rit & his team) was exactly what I had in mind. We're still hearing from our guests how they just loved everything about The Terrance!! In addition, Sue (the Inn Keeper) made herself available to myself at all hours of the day and all my vendors. She, along with all the other staff, where there to make sure we had an amazing experience. And, let me tell you, that is EXACTLY what we had!!
