Hampton Hall Farm

Hampton Hall is a Reconstruction Era historic mansion circa 1872.  Part of the original federal land grant to surveyor Adam Peck in 1792.  Construction on the mansion began circa 1863 with Thomas Tittsworth, but failed to be completed due to his death in May of that year.  During the Civil war, the spirited battle of Mossy Creek, December 29th, 1863, the property saw a good deal of skirmish action.  The 18th Indiana Battalion used the Chapel near the property as a make-shift morgue.  The Chapel, known as Elizabeth's Chapel, after founder Elizabeth Peck, provided the pulpit to Uncle John Peck, a Peck family slave and well loved preacher.  Joseph Branner, member of the prominent Branner family of Mossy Creek, completed the house in 1872.   His brother John Roper Branner built Glenmore Mansion, about 1 mile east.
