97 ARGILLA RD

historical narrative

Early home known as the Jamison Farm was struck by lightning and first burned in 1893 along with the barn; rebuilt by Jamison. Burned second time in June 1905. This home may have been built by William M. Wood, who allowed Jamison to live there; he become owner in 1916. This house plan was similar to 277 Lowell St. and the former Clover Farm House, other properties built by Wood and part of Arden Trust. Land was divided in 1991-92. Barn razed and home #95 was built on the spot.
