This circa 1850 home was built by Hammon Hutchinson, originally a spinner in the mill and later owner of a confectionery shop. Two daughters, Emily and Matilda, became teachers, with Emily eventually being promoted to Assitant Principal at the High School. A later owner was Samuel Abbott, son of Major Joseph Abbott.
