Joseph Wait sold this lot to Elizabeth Caldwell, widow of Thomas, in 1829, who moved a house from another site onto her property. The rear two story wing is believed to be the older house, joined together when the house was moved. Structural evidence suggests construction dates of about 1740 to 1775 for the two sections. View MACRIS
