Maplehurst Farm History

Mansion being barged down Skagit River | Rex Howell, photographer

Maplehurst Farm was established by Richard & Patricia Smith in 1965. They acquired the Moldstad Mansion, which was built in 1903 and was originally located 10 miles north in downtown Mount Vernon, and barged it south down the Skagit River to its present day location. They also moved the historic arbor and several trees from the original site of the mansion to their farm in south Mount Vernon.

The Smiths lived at Maplehurst Farm for 43 years before selling the property to their grandson Jeffrey Anderson and his fiance Jessie Hayton in 2008. Two weeks later, Jeffrey & Jessie hosted their own wedding with 300 guests at Maplehurst Farm. Their wedding was a success and they received so much positive feedback, they were inspired to open Maplehurst Farm to the public for weddings and celebrations.
