The History of the Seed House
While the current complex was constructed around 1800, there has been a mill on this site since 1694. A thriving port town in Colonial times, Chestertown was also an important center of agriculture. The Seed House served as a store house for seeds, grain and possibly fertilizer well into the 1900’s. Since then it has had various lives – as an artist’s studio, an antique shop, and a marketing firm’s headquarters, among other things. We hope you’ll join us in the spirit of growth and healing here at Chestertown’s Thrive Hive.
