The John Coumbe Farmstead, also known as Tippesaukee Farm, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places originally in 1992. Its 9.2-acre (3.7 ha) area included five contributing buildings. The listing area was increased and the listing was renamed Tippesaukee Farm Rural Historic District in 1996. The increase was a 193.5-acre (78.3 ha) area including three contributing sites.[1]

The property has a rock with embedded historic plaque noting that on this site in 1838 John Coumbe (1808-1882), of Devonshire, became the first white settler in Richland County.[2]
