DescriptionAaron and Rachel Wills home, 1786, located on east side of Rancocas-Centerton Rd., Rancocas, near the Friends' grave yard. This house is on or very near the original site of pioneer John Wills house. Ancient latches and hardware are throughout this home. Windows have some of the original glass, now quite iridescent. On this property was located the second grist mill in this county, and two old mill stones are partially buried in the ruins of the old dam near the lane entrance. Buttonwood trees of great age thrive around the house. It is probable that a ferry was operated across the Rancocas Creek by John Wills at this place.
