The wife, Maryanne Paschall, was a niece of Joseph Shipley of Rockwood Museum. The Paschall family lived at the farm until 1950. There was a springhouse, barn and an airfield (Weldin Rd was the landing field). The house was bought by Homer Booker, the builder of Shellburne and Sharpley. He removed the barn and restored the house to welcome future owners. The Booker family lived there while Shellburne and Sharpley were built. The home has been well cared for since that time. Ideally located in the heart of North Wilmington, close to major routes for commuting, close to surrounding areas of Chadds Ford, West Chester, Kennett, Wilmington, and everything this area has to offer.

Climate and Weather
The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
