Daniel Wood–Jerah Hill Farm

-A A +A
1771, c. 1825–1830(?). 19 Walker Rd. (1 mile north of Briggs Rd.)

This one-and-one-half-story, center-door house turns its gable end to the road that curves between it and the barn (c. 1870). Jerah Hill bought the house and remodeled it, doubtless introducing the Greek Revival treatment of the door. (Could it have influenced the preceding example?)
