The Alanson Warner Farmhouse







The Warner Farmhouse was the home of Alanson Warner and his wife, Catherine Albright Warner, the son of Andrew and Chole Fairman Warner, a native of Worthington, Massachusetts, came to Ontario, New York in 1816 with his parents.

Alanson was credited with inventing the differential, a device which allowed one wheel to turn faster than the other wheel.  His mowing machine could turn corners smoothly without losing power or dragging the outside wheel.

The one story house was built in 1838.  It was a simple two room structure built from used materials and had a loft.  Around 1868, the two story addition was added.  The family was more prosperous and larger.



This house now stands on the grounds of the Heritage Square Museum in Ontario, New York.
