The pre-1767 Jacob Cooper house — its foundation explored here by workshop students in 1995 —  is one of the oldest houses built by European settlers below the Helderberg escarpment, according to the Heldeberg Workshop, which says it was also the site of a Tory robbery in 1779 and a subsequent visit to the property by the Commission for Detecting and Defeating Conspiracies.
