Lemuel Farwell built the house across the street from this barn in 1842. The barn does not appear on Beers' 1869 map so it is probably later. The Farwell's were succeeded by Orrin and Flora (Stratton) Burnap and after their death (after 1902) the barn was sold to Henry Stratton. Herbert Burnap, son of Orrin and Flora continued to live in the house until 1960 when the house and barn were removed for the Townshend Dam floodplain.
