The Samuel Judd House is one of the oldest in Warrensburg, being built prior to 1789 when Timothy Stow moved in. It reflects the saltbox design that was the style of many homes of that time. In 1919 Howard Hull purchased the property and he and his wife, Marion, operated a dairy farm (Century Dairy) until after World War II. During the 1930s the Warrensburg Ski Club developed ski slopes, with a rope tow, on the property. Austin and Kitty Perry bought the house and land in 1960, constructed a large barn, and raised and boarded horses. It is now known as the Kit n Kin Ranch. (See also Warrensburg Ski Club.)
The Judd House (2 River Street)
North on Route #9, left of the highway, before coming into the village proper, stands an iron bridge of early vintage, spanning the Schroon at a very-near right angle to the plank road bridge. This bridge connects River Street with Route #9 or Main Street, as it becomes within the village. it is known as Judd Bridge - for Samuel Judd who owned the vast tract of hillside farmland opposite.
On top of the hill stands one of the oldest houses in Warrensurgh, one to the few saltbox type in the area. The exact date this house was built is not know, but was standing when Timothy Stow came to Warrensburgh in 1789. It is said that, at one time, a gristmill operated by James Hutchinson was part of this property. The remains of this former mill can still be seen at the river's edge.
The house and farm were owned, for many year, by the Judd family, Samuel and his descendants. In 1919, returning World War I veteran, Howard Hull, purchased the property. he and his wife, together, operated a dairy farm until after World War II - one of two such farms in the town which served the community long and well. ~Marie Fisher
