Joseph Gilpin Jr. inherited a portion of his father’s land in 1729 where he built the first section of the existing Gilpin home in 1745. Situated adjacent to one of the busiest thoroughfares in 18th century Chester County, Joseph Gilpin Jr. was in advantageous location to conduct business as a blacksmith. Making farming tools and other items in addition to being associated with the role of “ferrier,” Joseph made a decent lifestyle for himself and family.
