One Fine Property

May of 1967 was the year my parents bought the property but my mother

had been making us drive by it every Sunday for years.  She loved this house.

I’m thinking she had no idea what a money pit the place truly was.

The main house was built in 1800 with some speculation that part of

the ell was built in the late 1700’s by Dr. Pardon Haynes.  Dr. Haynes had

become the town physician in 1788.  He married Hannah Holloway in 1790

in Conway, MA. This is the Town of Rowe record of his marriage.

This property stayed in the family for many generations – until 1941.  I’ll be

exploring this family and how it lived at Middletown Hill Rd.

for almost 150 years  as well as some day to day goings on.
