At the time of The Battle of Monmouth(1778) the historic Craig house was utilized as an officers quarters and hospital. Weeks before troops started gathering, the owners, the Craigs, decided to flee and hid all their valuable silverware in the bottom of this well. Unfortunately it was extremely hot and thirsty British troops drank all the water from the well and in the process found and confiscated all the Craig’s silverware.
