(PAOLI) - An Orange County farm is turning 200 and remains in the same family.

The farm, which belongs to Jeanette Haworth, was started by her great, great, great Grandfather Joseph Farlow.

The farm was started in 1811 and in 1824 land was donated for a church and cemetery which remains today.

The 90 acre farm, which originally was 640 acres, was broken up and land given to other relatives, is two miles south of Paoli. Jeanette lives in Georgetown, and now leases the farm for growing corn.

Jeanette's son John, who lives in Lanesville, expects it will be passed on, as it has for many generations, to another member in the family.
